Buried treasure: the wreck of ‘The London’

22 November, 2017, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

In 1665 The London exploded and sank off Southend, concealing herself for centuries on the estuary bed. Her wreck was found in 2005, revealing a hidden history of early modern life. Join us for an immersive evening, exploring food, drink and ballads from the time of The London. Plunge beneath the waves in a virtual dive of the wreck, and see her glow in digitally mapped projection. Fill a pipe, knot rope and interact with artefacts. Meet the archaeologists bringing The London to the surface and bringing to life the warship which carried Charles II to England during the Restoration.

This interactive evening will include a brief talk by Dan Pascoe, Marine Archaeologist on ‘The London’. This talk will be followed by a reception and interactive elements.

This event accompanies the Buried treasure: The wreck of ‘The London’ exhibit, Friday 17 November – Monday 11 December.
