Over the weekend of the 11th- 13th November 1988 a conference on Maritime Celts, Frisians and Saxons was held in the Department for External Studies, University of Oxford. The conference attracted 90 participants from countries bordering the North Sea and the Channel, from Sweden in the Baltic, from Ireland to the north of the south-west approaches, and from Switzerland at the headwaters of the Rhine. The participants included not only archaeologists and historians but also naval architects and specialists in sea-level studies.
The aim of the conference organisers was to promote discussion of the maritime and riverine aspects of the southern North Sea and Channel region from c 300 BC to c AD 800. During the earlier centuries of this period, the Atlantic seaboard routes between the Mediterranean and north-west Europe became more intensively used and were re-orientated as Iberia and Gaul, and then southern Britain, were absorbed into the Roman Empire. Although some of these western routes continued to be used in the post-Roman period, this was on a reduced scale, and the focus for maritime commercial activity appears to have shifted from the Channel region to the southern North Sea, in particular to the lower reaches of the Rhine and adjacent waters. But traders were not the only seafarers in the thousand years or so covered by this volume - raiders, pirates, migrants, missionaries and fishermen also sailed these waters and those of the Channel and the Irish Sea.
