A three-day international conference exploring the legacy and wider impact of the Battle of Jutland has been announced by Britain's National Museum of the Royal Navy in Portsmouth.
More than 20 speakers from around the world will take part in the event from 31 May- 2 June 2017, the 101st anniversary of the biggest naval clash of the First World War.
They include the University of Calgary's Dr Holger Herwig, Dr David Stevens from the Australian War Memorial and Dr Stephan Huck, Director of the German Naval Museum in Wilhelmshaven.
Also speaking are Dr Andrew Gordon, author of The Rules of the Game and Dr Innes McCartney, the marine archaeologist who's explored the Jutland wrecks in the North Sea.
There will be a special screening of Die versunkene Flotte, a silent German feature film about the Battle of Jutland made in 1926.
The three-day conference is the first such event organised by the Royal Navy Museum, and it includes an opportunity to see the Centenary exhibition, '36 Hours: Jutland 1916: The Battle That Won The War'.
The Jutland Legacy Conference is at the National Museum of the Royal Navy, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, from May 31-June 2. For further details, and booking (including an 'early bird' offer available before April 30), see the NMRN website.
