Board of Longitude collection
Digitised papers of the Board of Longitude through the eighteenth century until its abolition in 1828. These papers throw a vivid light on the role of the British state in encouraging invention and discovery, on the energetic culture of technical ingenuity in the long eighteenth century, and on many aspects of exploration and maritime travel in the Pacific Ocean and the Arctic. As well as the fully digitised versions of the complete archive and associated materials, included are contextual essays, video, educational resources and hundreds of links through to relevant objects in the National Maritime Museum's online collections.
