The Rise and Decline of Smuggling during the Napoleonic Wars – by Dr. John Morewood
The most recent instalment of our Winter Lecture Series had now been released exclusively for our members. Head over to our members section to find this video and many others. You will find the password contained within your journal.
In this talk Dr. John Morewood will look at why smuggling reached epidemic proportions, the authorities attempts to suppress it, and ask who organised the smugglers (it may not be who you think!). We will also look at the role of smugglers during the war period, the ‘smugglers cities’.
