    The Wipers Times

    ‘Having managed to pick up a printing outfit (slightly soiled) at a reasonable price, we have decided to produce a paper. There is much that we would like to say in it, but the shadow of censorship enveloping us causes us to refer to the war, which we hear is taking place in Europe, in a cautious manner.’

    Mountbatten Maritime Award Certificate of Merit

    9781844861415Congratulations to Philip Parker who received a Certificate of Merit at the Mountbatten Media Awards last week! The awards were hosted by the Maritime Foundation and celebrates contributions to creating public awareness of maritime matters.

    The certificate was awarded to Philip Parker “for compiling an authoritative, original and informative publication to explain how trade from the earliest prehistoric times to the present has influenced the emergence of civilisations. Each epoch is described, and the main routes sustaining the movement of traded goods are covered, in six informative chapters written by eminent historians. The book is beautifully illustrated and edited, and significantly enriched with clear diagrams. This is a magnificent book in its own right, but also an invaluable source of information on an endeavour which underpins so much of world history.”
