Abstract:
Report on the findings at Pacific Wharf, which provide insights into post-medieval woodworking techniques and other aspects of ship-building technology. The volume documents these processes in their archaeological context and that of Southwark's maritime history. In the mid-seventeenth century a timber river wall allowed occupation of marginal land. The site was used as a timber yard and then developed as a commercial wharf, with new waterfronts constructed in deeper water. In the second half of the eighteenth century the Woolcombe family of shipbuilders developed a new river frontage and a wet dock. In the early nineteenth century the Beatson family adapted the site as a ship-breakers' yard, and built a house overlooking the wet dock and a warehouse. Includes French and German summaries, and also a glossary of woodworking and nautical terms.
