Event description

Description

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.

Friday 27th March
From 14:00 there will be opportunities for delegates to join guided tours of The Historic Dockyard Chatham.

At 18:00, 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).

Saturday 28th March
The
Conference will include papers from new researchers on a wide range of topics. The day will start at 9.00 and finish around 4.30. Lunch included.

Programme and Accepted Abstracts will be added closer to the date.
