The Second International Maritime Heritage Conference brought together scholars and professionals from a variety of areas. In addition to scientific advances, the contributions included in this volume discuss the future of historical harbours, dockyards and other similar maritime structures in today’s world, as well as the function of historical vessels and their heritage value. The role of development schemes and the relationship between tourism and the preservation of maritime heritage is also covered.
