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.
