After Hours Lecture at VIMS – Then and Now: From colonial ships to a state-of-the-art marine research vessel
June 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In 2018, the Virginia Institute of Marine Science welcomed a new, state-of-the-art research vessel, the R/V Virginia. The Virginia is the most modern, most capable marine research vessel in its size class in the U.S. This vessel provides a comparison to the re-created colonial ships docked just miles away at the Jamestown Settlement in Williamsburg. Join us as Hank Mosley from the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation and Durand Ward from VIMS compare navigation methods and research equipment as well as shipboard life from colonial times to today.
