THE RUTTER PROJECT
Early modern nautical rutters (sailing directions) are the earliest Western documents that testify to the stable and regular lived experience of traversing the earth’s oceans on a global, planetary scale.
Nuno Vila-Santa was awarded the "Prémio Almirante Sarmento Rodrigues 2021" from the Academia de Marinha for the book "Do Algarve, a Marrocos e à Índia: Francisco Barreto e a casa de Quarteira (séculos XV-XVI)”
The RUTTER team welcomes students and researchers of any level willing to contribute to the project. Contact us at email@example.com
