Fourteenth Century Mariners (Brenna Gibson)

This week, Brenna presented a draft of her First Year Presentation, a first year milestone that all Humanities MPhil/PhD students must complete. Her research project is entitled: “English Seafarer Communities in the Later Middle Ages: A Study in the Socioeconomics and Geographical Mobility of an Occupational Group.” She outlined the research she has done so far, including taxation data collection and her continued research on the economic, social and cultural elements of fourteenth-century life (both for mariners and non-mariners).
