Cover jacket for A Cromwellian Warship

We are pleased to announce the publication of our latest title: A Cromwellian Warship wrecked off Duart Castle, Mull, Scotland, in 1653 by Colin J M Martin FSA Scot, available now from our online shop!

This book records the excavation of the wreck of a small Cromwellian warship, believed to be Swan, which was found off Duart Point in 1979. Eleven chapters, including contributions from many of the experts who were involved in the project, chart the project’s development as well as explaining the historical background to the shipwreck. Lavishly illustrated with over 300 images, this is the definitive report of the major archaeological project undertaken at Duart Point over a 25-year period, led by this report’s principal author, Colin Martin.

This book will be fascinating reading for maritime archaeologists and historians, and reveals how established archaeological principles can be applied under water.
