Commercial networks and occupational structure of the West Country transatlantic dry cod industry, c.1560-1650

The generosity of the EHS PhD Bursary Scheme allowed me to begin my PhD studies in October 2015 by assisting with the cost of my tuition fees. It has also enabled me to conduct research in the National Archives and local archives across England which was crucial in helping me develop my thesis regarding the 17th-century export trade of preserved fish. As such, I have been able to develop further links with a key ERC project, plan further international research, and initiate what I hope will be a successful and far-reaching project on the history of European food consumption.
