New Virtual Tour of Exhibition Launched and Discussion of the Project's Future Research Plans
Between February and September 2023, Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery welcomed almost 70,000 people through its doors to view ‘The Last Voyage of the Gloucester: Norfolk’s Royal Shipwreck, 1682’. Visitors were guided through an enlightening and otherworldly exhibition which brought the Gloucester's final voyage and the wreck site on the seabed to life.
Now, in a new video, audiences can experience the exhibition through a virtual tour with wreck finders Julian and Lincoln Barnwell and exhibition curators and UEA historians Professor Claire Jowitt and Dr Benjamin Redding.
The UEA team’s research on the Gloucester is funded by the Leverhulme Trust until October 2024, but they need your help to continue their important work after this date. A fundraising campaign is now seeking to continue UEA's research into this internationally significant warship with the support of donations. For further information and to donate to the cause, please see Giving to UEA: the Gloucester (1682) Page.
