The Nautical Archaeology Society is starting a new free online lunchtime talks series inspired by the popular TEDtalks.
Each will be a stand-alone, half-hour talk, taking place on Tuesdays at 12:30pm.
Register once to have free access to all 12 talks until the end of June.
The first talk will be given by CEO Mark Beattie-Edwards. Discovering the London will look at the fascinating history of the London shipwreck.
He’ll discuss the wreck of the ship which blew up in the Thames Estuary in 1665. Protected in 2010 by Historic England, the site is on the Heritage At Risk Register due to the constant erosion that is taking place as it lies so close to the commercial shipping channel. Although two small scale excavations have taken place, the only work to save material from destruction currently being undertaken is by a small dedicated team of volunteer divers from The London Shipwreck Trust. Mark will talk not only of work to date but also about plans for the future to create a facility to house and display the site for the public.
Catch this on Tuesday 31st March at 12:30 pm.
Register now, you only need to register once to have free access to all 12 talks until the end of June.
