Coming Soon! Command of the Oceans
Command of the Oceans reveals, for the first time, the story of the Dockyard of the Age of Sail. Thrilling archaeology and long-hidden objects tell powerful, compelling stories of innovation and craftsmanship. Superb new galleries show how Chatham Dockyard and its people helped lead Britain to worldwide influence.
Discover two internationally significant maritime archaeological discoveries – the timbers of the Namur (1756), the ‘ship beneath the floor’ and an incredible treasure trove of archaeological objects recovered from the sea bed, from the Invincible (1758).
Great new visitor facilities complete the transformation!
