Making the Earth Global: Early Modern Nautical Rutters and the Construction of a Global Concept of the Earth

Project description

Nautical rutters a historical source of ocean history

Nautical rutters and ship’s logbooks are documents that contain important information on oceanic navigation. These records contain information beyond distances and latitudes and related to a wide range of disciplines. Information concerning geography, oceanography, meteorology and geophysics contained in these valuable documents make them important sources of historical knowledge. Nautical rutters could reveal the historical process under which global concepts of the earth were formed. The EU-funded RUTTER project intends to describe how navigators of 16th and 17th centuries experienced earth observation. The project will also identify and classify information included in Iberian rutters and logbooks of the period.
