The twenty fourth New Researchers in Maritime History Conference, run by the British Commission for Maritime History and sponsored by the Society for Nautical Research and the South West Maritime History Society, will be hosted by the ss Great Britain Trust in Bristol. The conference gives new researchers the opportunity to present their work in a constructive atmosphere and the conference is open to everyone with an interest in the subject.

There is also an opportunity on Friday afternoon at 14.00 to visit the Brunel Institute at the ss Great Britain and view the McGregor Library and see some of the Brunel Collection. Delegates may also wish to take time to view the brand new Brunel Museum featuring rare artefacts from Brunel’s life and career.

The conference starts on Friday evening with registration at 17.00 and at 18.00 Professor Andrew Lambert will deliver the keynote lecture. This will be followed by a reception on board the ss Great Britain. On Saturday there will be papers from new researchers on a wide range of topics. The day will start at 9.00 and finish around 16.30.

COST for the conference: £35, Students £30 (includes buffet on Friday evening, and lunch and refreshments on Saturday).
