A series of seminars convened by the Greenwich Maritime Centre and the National Maritime Museum

Caird Senior Research Fellow

'AND SINCE THAT TIME HAS NEVER BEEN HEARD OF': THE FORGOTTEN SEA APPRENTICES

The Marine Society's role in supplying the Navy is well known: the research here investigates a lesser known aspect, the recruitment of boys for the merchant service. It develops not only a missing piece of maritime history but also sheds light on social and economic issues such as trade routes, the supply and demand of the sector, ports participating, ages boys were sent to sea, survival rates, apprenticeship outcomes and social mobility.

ALL SEMINARS ARE ON MONDAYS HELD BETWEEN 15:30 and 16:30
