For three centuries Portsmouth has been the leading base of the Royal Navy, although the history of the port can be traced back to Roman times. From the Roman walls of Portchester to the best preserved Georgian dockyard in the world, and HMS Victory, the most illustrious survivor from the sailing navy, Portsmouth can lay claim to being the most important naval site in the UK and, perhaps, the world. Certainly no other yard has as complete or varied a selection of buildings from all periods. This colorful book focuses on the history and present status of Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and its preserved ships such as Victory, Warrior,and Mary Rose. It also considers the other historic sites in Portsmouth and Gosport, including the harbor fortifications, Submarine Museum, and the Royal Marines Museum.
