Time and Tide Wait For No Man

Nomintated for the Maritime Foundation Media Award 2011

It’s an old saying but a true one, and it transpires that the Maritime Foundation Media Award judges are equally difficult to sway.

Despite the best efforts of the Of Seas and Ships and Scientists team the Maritime Media Award went to “The Great Sea:  A Human History of the Mediterranean” by David Abulafia.

Despite missing out on the prize a small victory was won by way of the publication of Dr John Gould’s piece in the event’s brochure.

For those who did not attend the glitzy event, we have obtained the author’s permission to share it with you.
