A bit about me ...

My name is Emma Taaffe and I have been researching the history of Chatham Dockyard for many years.

Academically, I am reading for a PhD in History at the University of Hull.  I previously studied at the University of Westminster, gaining a Master of Arts Degree in Twentieth Century Historical Studies and a Bachelor of Arts Degree with Honours in Social Science. 

I grew up in Medway and both my grandfathers and two uncles worked in the Dockyard. 

Please see the links below for some articles I have written on the Dockyard's history.  If you have any comments, please email me:
