The Anthony Roll is one of the most important (and among the most frequently cited) sources for the naval history of the Tudor period. It's been a while since my last FAC (Vasa (ship)), but I've nevertheless kept up the naval theme. This article grew out of my work with the Mary Rose, and rather unexpectedly became an interesting project of its own. For those of you are who are interested, the entire text of the Roll can be found on Wikisource along with all 58 ship illustrations.
I look forward to your advice, criticism and comments.

Image check: 8 images, all public domain due to being from the 15 and 1600s, and with proper templates and such. All images have good captions, and are used in sections that talk about their subjects. --PresN 20:26, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
Support by Ruhrfisch - as noted I peer reviewed this and felt it was ready for FAC then. This is very well written, carefully referenced, and has lovely illustrations. I also note that the author has put the original text of the rolls on Wikisource and written the Swedish version too - quite an accomplishment. I have a few quibbles, which do not detract from my support.
Since there is a whole section on Flags, I think they should be mentioned explicitly in the lead in some way.
There is one dab link

Support an interesting article with fantastic images. Dincher (talk) 22:01, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for the support and the complement. I was very fortunate to get my hands on Knighton & Loades, which has been an excellent text and image source. Without it, it would not have been possible to take the article to this level of quality, nor to transfer the contents of the Roll to Wikisource. PeterIsotalo 11:49, 16 February 2010 (UTC)
Comments - sources look okay, links checked out with the link checker tool. Ealdgyth - Talk 15:48, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
