As part of a collaboration between the National Trust, Oxford University and the ‘TORCH’ Knowledge Transfer Partnership, a workshop on the theme of ‘Admirals and their Families’ is being hosted at Shugborough on 7th Jan 2019 (10.30am-5pm). It is being organised by Julie Farguson, Junior Research Fellow at Wolfson College, Oxford, and forms part of a series of workshops leading to further research into ‘Britain and the Sea’ (working chronology c.1545-c.1994).  This particular workshop will explore the different strategies pursued by naval families and their descendants in their desire to memorialise - or distance themselves from - their maritime worlds, and the social and economic impacts of naval service.
