Ships and Shipping illuminates medieval society and culture broadly, and is recommended for all medievalists and maritime historians. Focusing on manuscript illuminations - drawn mainly from the British Library's unparalled collection - marine archaeologist Joe Flatman traces the changing shape of ships in European life and culture from the 11th to 16th centuries. It was a period of unprecedented technological progress: within just a few centuries, the Viking rowboat evolved into the multi-decked, full-rigged carrack.

The ship loomed large in the medieval world and mind: whether cruising upriver laden with grain, cresting the high seas bristling with guns, or symbolizing a wealth of virtues, from power and promise to strength and safety.

The ships of Medieval Europe were powered by sail or oar, or both. There was a large variety, mostly based on much older conservative designs.

Although wider and more frequent communications within Europe meant exposure to a variety of improvements, experimental failures were costly and rarely attempted.

Joe Flatman, Ships and Shipping in Medieval Manuscripts (London: British Library, 2009), pl. 17. Galileo: Images of the Universe from Antiquity to the Telescope, ed. by Paolo Galluzzi, Florence, Palazzo Strozzi 13 March-30 August 2009 (Florence: Giunti, 2009), no. I.

The ship loomed large in the medieval world and mind: whether cruising upriver laden with grain, cresting the high seas bristling with guns, or symbolizing a wealth of virtues, from power and promise to strength and safety. Both upstream and downstream, inland and offshore, ships of every size and shape provided a vital means of travel, transport, and trade, linking villages and cities, land and sea, countries and continents. In Ships and Shipping in Medieval Manuscripts, marine archaeologist Joe Flatman focuses on these everyday vessels in manuscript illuminations—drawn from the British Library’s matchless collection—in order to trace the changing shape of ships in European life and culture from the eleventh to the sixteenth centuries, a period of unprecedented technological and maritime progress.

To unravel the realities and myths of the maritime world, Flatman first explores its multi-layered symbolism, essentially Christian, but rooted in pagan culture. Highlighting the dichotomy between life-giving freshwater and death-dealing saltwater, he explores the mythology behind the serene streams which promise hope and salvation and the stormy seas that teem with bewitching sirens and shipwrecked sailors. Turning to the realities of seaside life, this volume further examines the extraordinary advances in shipping and naval warfare, alongside an expanding maritime culture that came to include seafaring folk at work and play, on bustling decks and busy shores. Vividly brought to life by over 150 diverse images—from mermaids to eels, barges to warships—Ships and Shippingin Medieval Manuscripts paints a vibrant portrait of maritime life during an era of unmatched progress, expansion, and interest.

Vikus
The pull-down menu review here doesn't make much sense. This is a book about medieval ships based on medieval art (manuscripts and such). It has no characters or plot but it is informative.

Gardagar
Great selection of deverse illistrations. Confused about the title because was a small selection of other subjects.

Agalas
My boy friend was thrilled. We had seen this book in a sale, but it was too expensive, so he was very surprised and pleased.

Welahza
Lots of neat information and images regarding the importance of manuscripts and the small part ships and the early shipping industry played in the role of it. Also neat insight into the ways the people of that era viewed the Biblical characters of Noah, Jonah, and how they perceived the Ark to be built. A must have for anyone interested in the writing process of early manuscripts and seafaring lore. Today we have computers and machines that bind and publish books. Back then, it was all done by hand. The rich illustrations attest to the skill, knowledge and every day life of those who wrote the earliest known books, known as manuscripts back then.
