Learn all you need to know about post-medieval rope to become part of the volunteer team recording and providing first-aid conservation to the vast amounts of rope and cordage recently raised from the Invincible wreck during the Maritime Archaeology Sea Trusts' excavation.

This course will provide an introduction to the principles of cordage technology, its historical importance, focusing on the post-medieval period and the role of wet site archaeology in increasing our knowledge.  This will be achieved by a combination of short lectures and practical hands-on sessions. 

Participants will also have the opportunity to practice their new-found skills on Sunday 31st March and at subsequent volunteering days into the future. There is a lot of rope to record!
