The Big Fish Come to Land: An Archaeologist Explores the History of Fishing

Brian Fagan

Author Brian Fagan will detail the million year-old history of fishing, including how fishing contributed to the first settlement of the Americas. The story continues with the building of the Egyptian pyramids, in the watery landscapes of Angkor Wat, and with albacore fishing in Tahitian waters. He will also tell the story of how the Indus-trial Revolution started today’s crisis of the oceans. Fagan is the author of Fishing: How the Sea Fed Civilization, Elixir: A History of Water and Humankind, and Beyond the Blue Horizon: How the Earliest Mariners Unlocked the Secrets of the Ocean.
