Going live - the Longitude Blog

Camera Obscura closure

The Camera Obscura will be closed from 21 May until 25 May. The rest of the Royal Observatory and Meridian Line remain open.

BoL Project Logo.jpgEarlier this month we launched a new blog and website. This will bring you the latest news on a five-year research project on the British Board of Longitude, which oversaw the successful introduction of effective methods for position-finding at sea (among other things, as we will show).

The project is a collaboration between the National Maritime Museum and the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Cambridge and is supported by a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council. We'll be updating the blog regularly, so keep checking for the latest progress and news of events and activities.
