In his public lecture “Bronze Beaked Ships and the Reality of Naval Warfare,” Dr. William Murray argues that each major ancient Mediterranean power built and maintained navies, as control of the sea was crucial for maintaining control of the Mediterranean. Therefore, it is necessary to study ancient naval warships and technologies to understand more about these powers. However, since the only significant archaeological evidence we have from actual warships are bronze-cast rams, Murray concludes that we must use every available technology to study and analyze these rams, to more fully understand ancient naval warfare. Navies are just as expensive and difficult to maintain now as during ancient times. Ancient warships utilized the mortise-and-tenon
The Civil War had started on April 12, 1861 and it is one of the most important wars fought in American history.

Every beach was comprised of several hundred transport ships, small vessels, and also accompanied by a naval bombardment squadron of between fifteen and twenty warships. The goal of these ships were to destroy the german defenses at the top of the beach. The naval forces started this operation forty-five minutes before the land troops landed on the beach. They also fired aerial bombardments at night and at dawn. During the battle, the navy’s job was to provide support to the land troops by silencing most of the coastal batteries of the Atlantic Wall and giving valuable tactical support to the infantry, sometimes getting them out of tricky situations, as at Omaha.

It’s just a matter of time, now Camelot has fallen, that they turn their attention to us. It won’t be their main army, because that’s headed south after King Arthur. The last time I had news from outside Silver Drift, it was that the enemy’s army had clashed with the King’s forces at the bridge over the River Lune.

Earlier wars were fought in close quarters with unreliable weaponry, and insufficient materials that jeopardized the well-being of both sides of the battlefield.
