Bite size talk: Tales from HMS Rattlesnake (online)

The year is 1845 and HMS Rattlesnake is due to set sail from Plymouth on a voyage down to Australia to produce hydrographic surveys of the area. Find out what else they got up to, and the items they bought back to Worcester, with Kerry Whitehouse our World Cultures curator.
