Elizabethan Boats and Exploration


Had enough information about the Elizabethan era, yet? Well here’s some more! Boats were a huge part of Elizabeth’s dreams of economic and military power. Here are some resources that will expand your knowledge even further about Elizabethan exploration and what kind of boats there actually were.

Gresham College – Elizabethan Merchant Ships and Shipbuilding (hour long lecture, worth it to skip around for the pictures)

Sir Julian Stafford Corbett – Drake and the Tudor Navy (again, worth it for the pictures)

British Library – Exploration and Trade in Elizabethan England (great picture galleries!)

J.P. Sommerville – Elizabethan Exploration (Maps!)
