Mayflower 400: Crossing the Atlantic in 1620
Immerse yourself in the story of the Mayflower, from the ship's build, to her voyage to the Americas in 1620.
Join us for this virtual lecture with Solent’s Jonathan Ridley as he discusses the Mayflower and Speedwell and their crossing, which departed from Southampton in 1620.
Sitting in a place in a timeline between the Mary Rose and the development of larger, more powerful ships for the start of global trade, the Mayflower sailed at a time of great change for shipping.
Join Jonathan as he draws upon evidence discussing the ship's size, performance, the voyage itself, and how to find North America without a GPS! After this short lecture, there will be an opportunity to ask Jonathan any questions you may have.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Joining instructions will be sent prior to this event.
