Join us in the Barn Theatre for the final lecture in our Dig 2022 programme!

Historian Dr Ian Friel will talk about the evidence for some of the men who designed and built England's ships and boats between the 1290s and c 1500, and Gustav Milne will discuss what the archaeological evidence for medieval shipyards is.

These talks by expert speakers Ian Friel and Gustav Milne will discuss medieval England’s forgotten engineers, those master shipwrights who built the ships and boats of the 13th to 15th centuries, and evaluate the evidence which archaeologists use to try and identify the sites of medieval shipyards.
