The history of Southampton is tied to its maritime heritage. This book explores the intimate relationship the city has with its near neighbour the sea, tracing its development throughout the centuries. Using its natural advantages of sheltered deep water and minimal tidal variation, the Port of Southampton has constantly expanded and developed in order to remain at the forefront of the world shipping industry. Exploring various aspects of the port in great detail, Southampton: A Gateway to the World delves into the past of this thriving coastal city and discovers what events have taken place to cement its position as an international hub for both leisure and commerce. Written by a former Southampton museum curator, this book provides expert insight into the history of shipping, traditionally the city's most prominent industry which has allowed it to become known as the 'Gateway to the World'.
