Reprint of 'Before the Mast'
- Oxbow books/David Brown have just announced on their blog that they are
reprinting 'Before the Mast' for the Mary Rose Trust, and are accepting
pre-orders at a discounted price. This is good news for most re-enactors
as it covers woodware as well as clothing, food and all the minutae from
the Mary Rose wreck including the largest single group of accurately
dateable chests found to date.
