The Docklands History Group wishes to promote new research into the history of the Port of London and the River Thames. In 2017 it introduced a new initiative in the form of a seminar for new researchers into the subject to give them an opportunity to share their research with others. This was a great success and it is now intended to hold such seminars annually. These seminars will not be themed but the subjects covered will reflect the areas of interest of the individual researchers.
This will be the second annual seminar for new researchers and will feature a range of topics broadly within four subject areas as follows: Exploring Archive Material; Managing the Thames - Stopping Crime and supporting Leisure; The importance of the Thames in the First World War; and Dockside Communities and Port Labour.
