For three decades, the Trafalgar Chronicle has been the scholarly flagship publication of The 1805 Club, a non-profit organisation with an international membership of scholars and enthusiasts of the Georgian maritime era. The 1805 Club takes its name from the iconic Battle of Trafalgar which gave Nelson his acclaimed place in history and confirmed the role of the Royal Navy in asserting Britain’s sea power.
Through our programme of commemorative initiatives, publications, research and education, we are building a global community open to naval historians from all backgrounds. We recognise the role of the world’s sailing navies of the Georgian period and promote their legacy into the modern seafaring age. The Trafalgar Chronicle is an essential component of that mission. It is published annually by Seaforth Publishing, which maintains a global readership.
