In no other ancient European port is every major stage of its history represented by the recovered remains of ships and boats, waterfronts, warehouses and even former cargoes. Using this material evidence along with manuscript sources, Peter Marsden gives accounts of the design, construction and uses of vessels from 21 sites, ranging in date from the Custom House boat (c.1160–90) to the Blackfriars ship, a barge that sank with a cargo of bricks in 1670. Off-mint.
