This conference presents an overview of the Tudor Port, the success of which depended on men like Thomas Gresham. The papers will provide an archaeological focus on the harbour, its building, its shipping and the evidence for traffic trade. It complements and extends the picture developed in the lecture series that looked at recent research on the Sixteenth Century port by distinguished historians.

There will also be an opportunity to see a new display concerning the remains of an armed Elizabethan merchantman, the 'Gresham Ship', discovered in the Thames in 2003.

The talks in this part of the symposium includes:

Sugar and Spice and all things nice by Hazel Forsyth

Imports and Exports: Ceramic Studies by Jacqui Pearce

London and the Gun Trade by Phil Magrath
