The Ship Asunder: A Maritime History in Eleven Vessels, 10:00am Pavilion Arts Centrebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

From the swallowtail prow of a Bronze Age vessel to a stone ship moored at a Baroque quayside, Tom Nancollas, author of the bestselling Seashaken Houses, goes in search of eleven relics that together tell the story of Britain at sea.

Weaving together stories of great naval architects and unsung shipwrights, fishermen and merchants, shipwrecks and superstition, pilgrimage, trade and war, The Ship Asunder celebrates the richness of Britain’s seafaring tradition and asks how we might best memorialise it as it vanishes from our shores.
