This initial chapter attempts to provide a survey of the Western European maritime labour market between 1570 and 1870, but in doing so addresses the difficulties in finding reliable and precise information. The report considers the usefulness of estimation and scattered numbers and suggests alternative methods of information discovery in the form of analysing social influences, geographical settings and economic factors.
