Description
The ship loomed large in the medieval world and mind; both upstream and downstream, inland and offshore, ships of every size and shape provided a vital means of travel, transport, and trade, linking villages and cities, land and sea, countries and continents. In this visual history, with 150 vivid, page-filling color reproductions, marine archaeologist Joe Flatman focuses on these everyday vessels in manuscript illuminations in the British Library, tracing the changing shape of ships in European life and culture from the 11th to the 16th centuries and exploring their multilayered symbolism—essentially Christian, but rooted in pagan culture.
