Author and Historian
Roger Knight - Historian and award-winning author
Roger Knight’s career as a museum curator and historian has spanned more than forty years, comprising curatorial and research roles at the National Maritime Museum and subsequently at the Greenwich Maritime Institute, University of Greenwich. Since late 2014 he has been a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Historical Research, University of London.
Over the last five years, I have been writing a book on British convoys during the Napoleonic wars, a subject that no-one has considered before. The book has been delayed by the closing of archives during the pandemic, but it is now finished and the manuscript submitted in June 2021.
