Maritime Kent through the Ages

Friday & Saturday 22-23 June, 2018

Old Sessions House,
The Michael Berry Lecture Theatre

Surrounded on three sides by the sea, Kent has always been heavily influenced by the marine environment, whether this involved great storms, crumbling cliffs or the deposition of vast quantities of shingle or sand. Over the centuries, the county’s coastal communities, too, responded to the opportunities and limitations of living next to the sea and the proximity of mainland Europe, the great port of London and the neighbouring Essex coastline.

This joint conference (Centre for Kent History and Heritage with the Royal Museums Greenwich and Kent Archaeological Society), including the free keynote lecture on Friday evening, looks at some of these issues to offer a flavour of the richness of Kent’s maritime history – from the changing coastline to what is was like to live in the coastal communities, engage in the developing maritime industries and defend the coast. Drawing on the research of experts in these various fields, participants will gain a much greater understanding of ‘Maritime Kent’ at this educational event.
