In July 1714, parliament passed the Longitude Act, sparking a competition to solve the greatest maritime problem of the age - how to find exact position at sea. Dr Richard Dunn (Royal Museums Greenwich), curator of the new Ships, Clocks & Stars exhibition at the National Maritime Museum, offers his new interpretation of this remarkable story.
