Bibliographies

One of the main aims of the Medieval England Maritime Project is to provide bilbiographic guidance to different types of maritime history. There are currently three types of bibliographies planned for the site:

(1) Bibliography of Maritime History of the British Isles and Ireland, c. 700-1520 includes a thematically-organized list of works published 1990-2013. We are in the process of making the bibliography searchable and updating it to include works published up to 2023.

(2) Bibliography of Medieval English Maritime Trade by Port (in progress) includes secondary sources analyzing the overseas and/or coastal trade, largely during the period of the overseas customs accounts (1270s to 1520), organized by port.

(3) Annotated bibliographies of primary sources for the study of medieval English maritime history. Almost completed is the Editions of Customs Accounts, 1266-1520, organized by port, which lists printed and online transcriptions and translations of the TNA E122 particular accounts for customs collected by the Exchequer on behalf of the crown, as well as local port customs accounts. In progress are similar lists for Local Port Tolls and Shipbuilding.
