Ships and Boats: 1840 to 1950

Front cover for IHA Ships and Boats 1840-1950

Introductions to Heritage Assets

By Mark Dunkley (Author), Paul Stamper (Editor)

This overview looks at ships and boats built after 1840. Principally drawing on archaeological, technological and historical sources, it describes vessels used on English inland and coastal waters and in the open sea.

The evidence of wrecks and abandoned vessels is drawn on, as well as extant vessels. Also included is the early development of submarines.

These guides cover a wide range of archaeological heritage types. They are intended to provide an expert yet accessible introduction to many areas of archaeology, including historical development, processes of discovery and guides for further reading.
