Maritime History: The AAMH

  • What is Maritime History?

    Maritime history is the study of people and their activities in, on, around and under the waters of the world. This includes oceans, estuaries, rivers, and creeks.

  • Who we are

    The AAMH is run by an Executive Council that has officers from all States and Territories. The AAMH is not restricted to Australia and Australian maritime history: its membership and field of interest are international in scope.
