Anderson Medal Presentation 16 April

April 2015

 16 April 2015, National Maritime Museum, Greenwich

AHZUD-1We are delighted to present this year’s Anderson Medal for a maritime history publication to Susan Rose for her book England’s Medieval Navy: Ships, Men and Warfare. 

The judging committee thought that Susan ‘has done a magnificent job in researching and writing about an era that is often neglected and perhaps sometimes ignored in maritime history. Her book, which interpreted a difficult subject in an easily read and coherent way, was also very well referenced and illustrated.’

The presentation of the medal and a talk by Dr Rose on her book will take place in the Leopold Muller Lecture Theatre at the National Maritime Museum, once again emphasising the close ties between the Museum and the SNR.
