In the middle of the 18th C the navy was often regarded almost as an outlaw society of tyranny, squalor, drunkenness and incompetence, but by Nelson`s time and the war against Napoleon the view overall was that they were heroes, saviours of the nation, and in many ways the epitome of a sound social structure..

Join this anniversary lecture with Andrew Varney (Swansea University), to hear how Jane Austen`s writings can be placed in this context to show that she was alive to more than simply the comings and goings of her own small world.
