Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • British - Refers to the culture of the modern nation of the United Kingdom. It also refers to the cultures of historical nations that had Great Britain as the central ruling power. For the culture of the ancient Britons, who were those tribes that spoke the Celtic (Brythonic) language, use "Ancient British."
  • docks - In modern casual, common usage, any structures along a body of water intended to support people or their activities, such as boarding a boat or unloading cargo. Examples include piers and wharves. Distinguished from "docks (waterfront spaces)," which are spaces where ships dock.
  • etchings - Prints made from an etched printing plate, which is a metal plate on which a design is made by coating the plate with an acid-resistant substance, creating a design in the coating, and then exposing the plate to acid, which etches the plate where the metal is exposed. For designs incised directly into a copper plate using a burin or graver, use "engravings (prints)."
  • houses - Individual dwellings designed to be occupied by a single tenant or family. May also refer to a building for human occupation, for some purpose other than that of an ordinary dwelling; with this usage, "house" is generally prefaced (e.g., "cowhouse," "almshouse").
  • marines - Creative works that depict scenes having to do with ships, shipbuilding, or harbors. For creative works depicting the ocean or other large body of water where the water itself dominates the scene, use "seascapes."
  • ships - Watercraft generally larger and more seaworthy than boats, usually propelled by sails or engines.
