A number of communal seals of English towns incorporate depictions of ships. This is particularly true of Cinque Ports such as Dover, Sandwich, Pevensey, and Winchelsea, whose seals commemorate the association between privileges granted by the monarchy and naval service they gave kings upon demand. Civic seals only start appearing in any numbers in the thirteenth century, however, and their depictions have been constrained to fit a seal's confined space and shape. Nonetheless, sufficient detail is often given to allow historians to trace the general development of ship types and to reveal changes in ship design. This is the case of our preasent seal, the seal of Dover (ca AD 1284). Its main castles are larger than those in the Sandwich portrayal, and extend over the sides of the ship; a steering oar is conspicuous near what ought to be the stern.
