Join Mark Wilkins, Curator of Maritime History at the Calvert Marine Museum, as he explores “Maryland in the Age of Sail”. This eight week lecture series includes topics ranging from European influence to the tobacco trade to the Civil War on the Chesapeake and more, through the 20th century.
This lecture will explore the design and use of various sailing watercraft. Originally vessels were designed for protected waters such as coastal trading and the Mediterranean; when seafarers began exploring the Atlantic and Pacific they needed new types of vessels—this talk will discuss the design evolution of the ocean-going vessel—enabling explorers to find America and eventually Maryland.
Lectures are free and open to the public.
