This conference will examine the role of littoral and offshore naval facilities (dockyards, anchorages, naval hospitals, hospital ships, guardships, etc) of the Royal Navy and other naval powers whose ships operated in the Mediterranean during the long 18th century (1688–1815). It will explore the nature of these facilities in the heavily contested Mediterranean. How significant were Royal Navy facilities to British defeat or victory? How did they compare with facilities constructed by other naval powers operating within the Mediterranean?
