Cooking Up A Voyage
Head to the British Library, where you can drift away on waves of adventure with James Cook: The Voyages (from 27 April 2018). This legendary Yorkshireman spent the 18th century exploring and mapping the Pacific, New Zealand and Australia, on board HMS Endeavour. The ship first set sail from England 250 years ago in 1768, making this anniversary an opportunity to discover Cook’s story through the documents that were used at the time. You can also see and read the explorer’s personal journal and look at detailed maps.
