Updated and expanded edition to celebrate the 150th anniversary of one of the world’s most iconic ships, the Cutty Sark.
Dr Eric Kentley was formerly a curator at the National Maritime Museum, in a variety of roles from ethnographer to Head of Ship Technology and Corporate Planner. After 16 years he moved to London's Design Museum as Assistant Director, responsible for the museum's curatorial and education programming. Since going freelance at the end of 2001, he has specialised in interpretation projects. His involvement with Cutty Sark began in 2003 when he assisted with the development of the plans for the conservation of the ship and he went on to play a major role in the interpretation of the ship, including authoring the exhibition content. Eric is the author of several books, including Eyewitness Boat, Cornwall's Bridge and Viaduct Heritage and Discover the Titanic. He lives in south London.
