Description

Anthony Burton's concise and informative guide to British shipbuilding will be absorbing reading for anyone who wants to learn about its history or find out about the life of a shipbuilder and his family. In a clear and accessible way he traces its development from the medieval period to its peak in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and on into the present day. This practical handbook will be an invaluable guide for family and local historians and for readers with a more general interest in shipbuilding. It introduces the variety of national and local records that are available for genealogical research and considers the many other resources that can yield fascinating information about the industry and those who worked in it. Anthony Burton left a career in publishing in the 1960s to become a full-time writer, specializing in industrial and transport history. Among his many books are three important studies of British ships and shipbuilding: The Past Afloat, which accompanied a BBC TV series that he wrote and presented, The Rise and Fall of British Shipbuilding and The Daily Telegraph Guide to Britain’s Maritime Past.
