I endeavour to bring to life the lives of the people who went to sea to trade, defend our shores and discover new lands, and those who funded their exploits. Telling tales of exploration, sea battles and pirates, using the navigational instruments, re-created period maps and artefacts I add a hands on, interactive experience for visitors. Additionally I have first hand experience of sailing tall ships which helps to paint a realistic picture of life at sea.
We demonstrate the importance of Early Shipping and Navigation including showing the function and use of an Astrolabe as part of our Medieval & Tudor historical interpretation for Schools (Keystage 2) History of Science presentations are our specialty - do please also see our Tudor page for further advances!!
