SEMINAR: Local knowledge, global change in maritime

On 23 March 2023 we held an online seminar with an expert panel of historians and industry figures to mark the launch of the first report, Local knowledge, global change: a study of Lloyd's Register Surveyors 1834-1840. The audience asked some great questions and we came away with a lot of notes about interesting future crossovers and research agendas!
