In 1626–27, the Sparrow-Hawk began her final journey across the brutal winter waves of the Atlantic Ocean, departing from the southern coast of England with America as her destination. As cases of scurvy and whispers of mutiny rose, the hopes of those aboard the small vessel began to fade.
Join historian and author Mark C. Wilkins as he reveals the Sparrow-Hawk’s secrets exposed by the tides over two hundred years later, the only surviving remains of a 17th-century trans-Atlantic vessel. This talk will be broadcast by Zoom and is sponsored by a grant from Mass Humanities and the Bridge Street Fund.
