Into the Blue

Captain James Cook's three epic journeys between 1768 and 1779 were the last great voyages of discovery. Sailing some 170,000 miles, Cook's ships reached every continent and every ocean, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, from Kamchatka to Java to Easter Island to the coast of Oregon. Before Cook set off, one third of the world's map remained, simply, blank. By the time he was done, there was little left to discover. Cook and his men were also among the first Europeans to encounter Pacific

Smuggling: In Fact and Fiction
Smuggling: In Fact and Fiction

Brandy for the parson, baccy for the clerk...' We have an image, mostly from movies and novels, of a tall ship riding gently at anchor in a moonlit, secluded bay with the 'Gentleman' cheerfully hauling kegs of brandy and tobacco ashore, then disappearing silently into the night shadows to hide their contraband from the excise men in a dark cave or a secret cellar. But how much of the popular idea is fact and how much is fiction? Smuggling was big business - it still is - but who were these

A-Z of Gloucester
A-Z of Gloucester

Gloucester was one of Roman Britain's most important cities. Before the M4 and M5 motorways were built it was known as the crossroads of England. The city's street layout is much the same as it was when planned by Queen AEtheflaed, daughter of Alfred the Great. Behind modern shopfronts there is still much to be seen of its heritage, including the finest medieval merchant's house in the UK and a fifteenth-century coaching inn that was the country's largest when it was built. The city's cathedral

The Sea Devil
The Sea Devil

In 1916, a tall ship named Hero sailed under Norwegian colours out of the Elbe river in Germany. Loaded with cargo and ostensibly bound for Australia, she was in reality a German raider: the Seeadler, commanded by German aristocrat Count Felix von Luckner. She was tasked with destroying as many British merchant vessels as possible. Telling the story from the viewpoint of the utterly foxed and infuriated British Admiralty trying to capture this mysterious raider, The Sea Devil follows von

Hops and Glory
Hops and Glory

The original India Pale Ale was pure gold in a glass; a semi-mythical beer specially invented, in the 19th century, to travel halfway around the world, through storms and tropical sunshine, and arrive in perfect condition for a long, cold drink on an Indian verandah. But although you can still buy beers with `IPA' on the label they are, to be frank, a pale imitation of the original. For the first time in 140 years, a keg of Burton IPA has been brewed with the original recipe for a voyage to
