Extremely good research book for 16th c. artifacts. Woodworking, leatherwork, tools, clothing - this book contains a wealth of details on all aspect of a seaman's life at that time. ( )

This book is simply amazing. The amount of information included is both terrific and inspiring: I will be adding both this book and the volume on the ordinance found at the Mary Rose recovery to my libary as soon as possible (ordinance book is being published in Dec, 2008).

When it comes to illustrations in both pictures and text I haven't seen anything better anywhere! Incredible amounts of little picture pieces of life aboard a Tudor Warship and the men who sailed in her. ( )
