Winter Warmer Talk - by Nick Ball of Chatham Historic Dockyard on Navy Board Ship Models

This talk, by Nick Ball, head of the collections department at The Historic Dockyard Chatham outlines his research into the construction and function of the models together with the identities of those who built and owned many of the finest ship models ever made. From about the middle of the seventeenth century exquisitely crafted ship models with distinctive unplanked lower hulls began to be made. Regarded as the pinnacle of the ship modeller’s art, they are valued both as art objects and as potential historical evidence on matters of ship design.


This presentation will be held on Thursday 10th March 2022 as a Zoom webinar starting at 19.00
