Sea ships – evidence for cultural exchange in global historical perspective
An interdisciplinary workshop for humanities, social and natural scientists

16th till 17th January 2015 
German Maritime Museum 
Institute of the Leibniz Association
Bremerhaven (Germany) 

Questions about both motivation and implementation of cultural exchanges are today just as topical as then. From the end of the Middle Ages onwards particularly sea shipping contributed to an increase in transcontinental contacts: Expeditions led to the discovery of new sea routes and therefore to the development of merchant and military fleets – for commercial business and territorial claims. Various factors caused the sinking of many vessels. These wrecks remain largely untouched on the seabed and left behind a historical snapshot. For scientists “closed finds” provide an optimal research base. But despite the fact that a lot of material culture of ship wrecks are known an appropriate contextualisation of these finds in aspect of reciprocal exchanges has not been done yet.
The workshop pursues the question of which statements to cultural exchanges and daily life at sea in Early Modern Times will be available based on both maritime archaeology and the history of sea shipping. Short presentations concerning the following questions provide the basis of the discussion:
1. How do cultural exchanges manifest itself in sea shipping in Early Modern Times?
2. Which archaeological evidence (social historical, logistical, nautical, ship constructional and military) can be provided in this context?
3. What aspects of continuity and/or discontinuity are identifiable both regionally and temporally?
