A Link in the Chain: Trade and Transhipment on the Northern Seas
Tenth Maritime History Conference of the Association for the History of the Norhtern Seas
To be held at Merseyside Maritime Museum Albert Dock, Liverpool,
8-12 August 2001
The Association for the History of the Northern Seas has built up an enviable reputation both for the quality of work presented and for the hospitality at the various venues at which it has been held.
The conference theme has been chosen to reflect Liverpool's role both as an ocean port and as the hub for a wide variety of transhipment trades, coastal and otherwise. Contributions are invited following this theme over as wide a period as possible and in any part of the Northern Seas. Subsidiary themes which intending contributors may care to consider include intermodal integration, as in the ownership of ports and vessels by railway companies, and the movement of cargoes within ports themselves. The trade of major inland waterways comes within the theme, as does railway traffic inland provided that it relates directly to the handling of sea-borne goods.
As is usual at AHNS conferences there will be at least one field trip and various social activities. Additional visits will be arranged for accompanying persons if there is sufficient demand.
