Viking to Victorian: Exploring the Use of Iron in Ship Building
Another recent maritime history book by Engvig was
Viking to Victorian: Exploring the Use of Iron in Ship Building,
which enlists sailing adventure, personal heritage, and practical skills in an
academic examination of iron's impact on maritime history.
He uses authentic ships and cultural traditions to forge a new preservation methodology in a vividly illustrated,
untraditional maritime reference work.
This book details how wrought iron was used in Norwegian Viking ships, as well as ships built from
iron, such as the STAR OF INDIA, S/S HANSTEEN, FALLS OF CLYDE, ELISSA, AF CHAPMAN
and many other vessels of importance to maritime history and shipbuilding.
