The Riddle of the Crest

Have you ever looked closely at Bermuda's coat of arms and wondered about the ship depicted there? Perhaps you assumed it was the Sea Venture, the well known ship that wrecked in 1609, leading to Bermuda's colonisation by the British in 1612. Evidence suggests this assumption may be incorrect!

Read the whole fascinating story in "The Riddle of the Crest" by Custodian of Historic Wrecks, Dr. Philippe Rouja, featured in the heritage issue of the RG Magazine, May 2009.

Also, watch the film, the first of a series of Educational Documentaries being produced by LookBermuda.
