Life at Sea in the Age of the Randolphs of Wilton

December 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join Wilton House Museum for our annual lecture series. December will feature Tyler Rudd Putman, Gallery Interpretation Manager at the Museum of the American Revolution.

Many members of the Randolph family of Virginia were as familiar with life at sea as life on land, like most Americans in the 18th and early 19th centuries. In this talk, using period images, original artifacts, and his own sailing experience, Tyler Rudd Putman will take us belowdecks on sailing ships to consider what ships look like as living spaces. What did sailors and passengers eat? Where did they sleep? How could you make yourself at home at sea?

This virtual event will be hosted on Zoom with a suggested donation of $10.
