    Antique, industrial, vintage interiors

    Spring is on the horizon. It may not seem like it what with the cold weather, but there are clues everywhere.

    Naval navigation

    Naval navigation

    In this post we’re going to take a look at how naval navigation started before modern methods – and it’s fascinating. You’ll find that simple methods moved on to more sophisticated ones with the advancement of science, and the genius of one or two individuals both here and overseas.

    How did the old mariners find their way around undiscovered waters?
    In the beginning celestial navigation would have helped sailors find their way around the oceans. By measuring the altitude of the Northern Star above the horizon, the angle in degrees helped measure the latitude of the ship.
