Don't miss this excellent opportunity to hear Thames Discovery Programme Project Officer Elliot Wragg discuss London's role in a shipbuilding revolution as part of the Gresham College Mondays at One Maritime London Series

London at one time was the largest port and industrial city in the world. Bermondsey, Deptford, Blackwall and Greenwich were all major centres for shipbuilding. This lecture will look at the industrial river and consider the changing needs of shipping with the transition from sail to steam and its impact on London as a port.

The talk will take place at the Museum of London. No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a 'first come, first served' basis. Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture.
