New approaches of British and Ionian presence in ports and grain-markets of the Russian Black Sea and the Danube (mid-18th – mid-19th century)
The present book is the result of a three-year research project under the title British and their Ionian Subjects in the Port-Cities and Grain Markets of the Black Sea and the Danube: penetration, settlement, integration (late 18th – mid-19th centuries).
The research project was implemented within the framework of the Action ‘Supporting Postdoctoral Researchers’ of the Operational Program ‘Education and Lifelong Learning’ (Action’s Beneficiary: General Secretariat for Research and Technology), and was co-financed by European Social Fund (ESF) and Greek State.
The aim of the research project was the identification, analysis and presentation of the principal terms and incentives of the maritime and commercial penetration, settlement and integration of the British and their Ionian subjects in the port-cities and grain markets of the Russian Black Sea and the Lower Danube.
Our project, in brief Britonian Project, covered actually the period from mid-eighteenth to mid-nineteenth century and focused on the port-cities and grain markets of the Russian Black Sea and the Danube River (Odessa, Nikolayev, Taganrog, Rostov-on-Don, Mariupol, Galatz, and Braila).
