The United Kingdom – the importance and utility of maritime power
Wednesday 24 April, Old Sessions House, Longport, Canterbury
The sea has, to a large extent, ensured the UK’s survival over the centuries; and it is via the sea that the country’s global dominance was established in the 18th and 19th centuries. This dominance permitted the sea to be exploited for trade, allowing for growth in wealth and influence, which saw the creation of the British Empire – a huge global military and trading power with a significant proportion of the world under British rule. What is the importance and utility of maritime power to the UK today?
This event is open to the public.
