Excerpt from English Seamen in the Sixteenth Century: Lectures Delivered at Oxford Easter Terms, 1893-4
How the English navy came to hold so extra ordinary a position is worth reﬂecting on. Much has been written about it, but little, as it seems to me, which touches the heart Of the matter. We are shown the power of our country growing and expanding. But how it grew, why, after a sleep of so many hundred years, the genius of our Scandina vian forefathers suddenly sprang again into life - of this we are left without explanation.
