This article explores port typography and historiography. It reviews the expansion of
port history as a field over the last 50 years, with increasing focus on the Early Modern,
Medieval and Classical periods. Concentration on leading players has been replaced
by interest in a range of ports, and comparisons at a local and regional level, although
regrettably usually not at international or global level, for reasons considered. The
author takes issue with suggestions that port history sits uncomfortably at a nexus of
local, national and international historiography, arguing that this is a strength, providing
both basic coherence and wider perspective.
