Maritime Heritage East
Maritime Heritage East (MHE) is a unique programme running across the East of England working with more than 30 museums and heritage organisations, whose goal is to establish and develop the position and importance of maritime history, both within the region and nationally.
The programme was originally created by Norfolk Museums and Archaeology Service with funding from a range of organisations. Today it is funded by the members together with an annual grant from SHARE. It is now managed by the members themselves through a management team.
On this website you can search for practical information such as museum opening times and admission costs as well as spend time exploring online exhibitions and journeying through themes, which unite the maritime collections across the East of England. Each organisation is responsible for its own entries.
Sailors’ Valentines are the hexagonal shell designs which sailors returning from the West Indies supposedly put together using attractively shaped and coloured shells collected from the Caribbean to present to their wives or girlfriends when they reached home
