Stranger tides: Treasure, plastic and circumnavigating rubber ducks

Stranger tides: Treasure, plastic and circumnavigating rubber ducks

This event has finished Took place on: Monday, 16th Sep 2019

What is the difference between flotsam and Jetsam? Do the rules of ‘finders keepers’ apply to items found on shore? (Spoiler alert – No!). Why is there so much plastic in the ocean and what can we learn from the humble rubber duck? All of these questions and more will be answered during a lively panel debate.

This event is part of the contemporary maritime series in partnership with the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. The next talk, 'Unspoilt World? Arctic geopolitics and modern exploration' is on the 2 December 2019.

Cost: £16
