The conference, run by the British Commission for Maritime History and sponsored by the Society for Nautical Research, supports emerging scholars who wish to share their work in a supportive environment and build relations with other maritime historians.
The Conference gives new researchers a unique opportunity to present their work in a constructive and supportive environment and build relations with other maritime historians. The conference is open to everyone with an interest in this subject.
There will be a keynote lecture followed by a buffet and the opportunity to explore the Award-Winning Command of the Oceans Galleries. This Gallery features two internationally significant maritime archaeological discoveries – the timbers of the Namur (1756), intriguingly laid to rest beneath the floor of the old Wheelwrights’ workshop, and an incredible treasure trove of archaeological objects recovered from the sea bed, from the Invincible (1758).
2pm & 5pm
