Wednesday 24th October at 11.30 am. '"Seafaring Tudors and Stuarts' : Dr Aaron Jaffer
Dr Aaron Jaffer is treating us on a very personal tour of Tudors and Stuarts gallery at the National Maritime Museum
Dr Aaron Jaffer received his doctorate in History from the University of Warwick. His first book, Lascars and Indian Ocean Seafaring, 1780-1860: Shipboard Life, Unrest and Mutiny, was published in 2015. He has worked on exhibitions at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Chatsworth House and the River & Rowing Museum. He is currently part of the National Maritime Museum’s Endeavour team, which has created four major new galleries which have recently opened at Greenwich.
11.30 am we meet on 'Australia' on the Great Map on the Mezzanine floor. The tour will take about an hour and we shall hope to move on to a local hostelry for a pie and a pint.
There is no cost for this event but a donation of £10 to NMM would be most welcome and in any event we shall be making a donation
