Beautifully illustrated and accompanied by extraordinary histories, this book is a celebration of 100 of the most important and exquisite objects in the Royal Museums Greenwich collections, including some of the most significant new acquisitions of the last ten years. From Elizabeth I, the Armada Portrait to the uniform Nelson wore during the Battle of Trafalgar; Harrison's remarkable timepieces to Yinka Shonibare's Ship in a Bottle; the last message of Sir John Franklin's ill-fated expedition to find the North-West Passage to George Stubbs's Kangaroo and Dingo paintings, the Museum's iconic objects are presented in a chronological format, each selected for their unique significance.
