THE BRITONIAN WEBSITE
The “Britonian” website was created as part of the Action “Supporting Postdoctoral Researchers» of the Operational Program "Education and Lifelong Learning" (Action’s Beneficiary: General Secretariat for Research and Technology), and is co-financed by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Greek State. The website, under the supervision of post-doctoral researcher and lecturer Panayiotis (Panos) Kapetanakis focuses on the British and Ionian Maritime presence in the Eastern Mediterranean Seas, the Black Sea and the Danube River during the period from the 18th to the early 20th century.
Our website is actually based on our new research project under the title: British and their Ionian Subjects in the Port-Cities and Grain Markets of the Black Sea and the Danube: penetration, settlement, integration (late 18th – mid-19th centuries).
Our Britonian research project aims at shedding light on the British and Ionian maritime presence on the seas of the Eastern Mediterranean and especially on the Black Sea.
THE BRITONIAN DATABASES
The Britonian research project is consisted of three databases related to the collected archival material; the library database, which is hosted at library.britonian.eu, the archival database, which is hosted at archives.britonian.eu and the database of "Odysseus - Ionian maritime history, 1797-1864", which is hosted at odysseus.britonian.eu. The databases are not publicly available during the development period.
