Shipwrecks of London, Robert Smith

With so many ships visiting London, it is hardly surprising that there have been thousands of shipwrecks in the Thames. This talk tells the story of 12 of those ships, from a Roman cargo ship to a mysterious sinking in the Cold War. Rob will show pictures and maps to accompany the talk, and give you some suggestions of places to visit to find out more about ships like the 17th century ship whose sinking shocked Samuel Pepys, or the ship full of explosives that still sits at the bottom of the Thames Estuary.
