About me

Gender MALE
Location St Albans, United Kingdom
Introduction I am currently lecturing in British and Imperial history at Swansea University. (http://www.swansea.ac.uk/staff/academic/artshumanities/hc/stevengray/). Having completed four years at Swansea University, (BA (Hons) History, MA Imperial and Maritime History), I completed my PhD at the University of Warwick. The project was concerned with the expansion of a steam-powered Royal Navy in the second half of the nineteenth century and the wider ramifications across the British empire. It specifically looked at the importance of coal to our understanding of the Royal Navy, Imperial Defence (both local and global) and cultural interchange at local imperial sites. This blog will hopefully provide interesting updates on the progress of my research, along with other bits I find interesting, and perhaps even some pleas for help.
