Blaydes House Maritime History Seminar Series 2018-19
Myths and Broadsides in the Naval Ideology of the Later Stuart Age: or, how to make Christopher Columbus an Englishman
J.D. Davies, Society for Nautical Research

The study of maritime ideology is a neglected but important area. This talk will study the naval policies and ambitions of Kings Charles II and James II through this prism, examining the myths, inventions and downright lies which underpinned the notion of British monarchs' 'sovereignty of the seas', and demonstrating how this shaped everything from the aggressive actions of naval captains and crews, to the decoration of the royal palaces, the Restoration theatre, the work of the era's greatest scientists, and the music of Purcell.

Entry is free and no ticket is needed. Places are on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, so latecomers may not be admitted when the lecture room is full.
Doors open for tea and coffee at 5.30pm; seminar commences 6pm.

The seminar series is supported by the Maritime History Trust
