The talk will summarise the discovery (2003), recovery and research on the Gresham Ship, setting the vessel in its political, economic and maritime context. It will also look at the Tudor port of London in the period that Gresham College was established and the Spanish Armada repulsed. This is the first public presentation of the five-year research programme on this material.
