Dr Susan Rose, author of England's Medieval Navy 1066-1509: Ships, Men & Warfare (Seaforth Publishing, 2013), is to be presented with the Anderson Medal, awarded by the Society for Nautical Research.

The presentation ceremony, along with a talk by Dr Rose, will take place in the Leopold Muller Lecture Theatre at the National Maritime Museum on Thursday, 16 April. For booking information, visit the SNR website.
