The Malcolm Young Lecture by Daniel Crouch–Armada Maps

Daniel Crouch will offer a talk titled, “A Protestant Wind or Hot Air? A study of the Astor Armada drawings.”

In January 2021 a set of ten ink and watercolour drawings were acquired by the National Museum of the Royal Navy. The re-discovered manuscripts are the earliest visual representations of the progress of the Spanish Armada and depict one of the greatest events in British naval history.
