The Ship Asunder

The Ship Asunder

A Maritime History of Britain in Eleven Vessels


  • Elegantly combining a tour of Britain's ports, coasts and islands with a tour of an imaginary ship that contains fragments acquired across the centuries, Tom Nancollas has written an enchanting and thoughtful account of Britain's rich maritime heritage.
    David Abulafia, author of The Great Sea and The Boundless Sea
