Women in Maritime History


Ethel Langton

The Maritime Archaeology Trust have put together a blog post about Women in maritime history.

As with many other areas of our past, are often overlooked or forgotten. This doesn’t mean that they had nothing to contribute; just that these things were either barely recorded or simply lost to time. Uncovering these stories is vital in understanding our past. There have always been women in areas traditionally considered “masculine”. There are the stories of just three such women in Maritime History, researched and written by author Daisy Plant.


Daisy is an author who has written a book ‘A History of Women’s Lives on the Isle of Wight’. Telling the stories of remarkable women, who were not queens or courtesans, but have incredible stories to tell.
