Podcast 7, 22nd May 2020* - SUT Chair of Education Committee Susan John interviewing Mark Beattie-Edwards, CEO of the Nautical Archaeology Society, about the discovery, excavation to date, & future plans for the wreck of the 'London' - a rare English civil-war-era warship, that was lost in a massive explosion in the Thames Estuary off Southend in 1665. London has been described at Southend's very own 'Mary Rose', and Mark discusses the possibilities of how she could be raised as a future education and archaeology project - but that time is short, as the wreck lies just off a major shipping lane and is in danger of destruction by erosion.
This is an extra episode timed for the UK late May bank holiday weekend.
