Those Emblems of Hell?

Liverpool University Press

This chapter begins with an introduction to Finnish shipping prior to 1700, before discussing in detail its expansion in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and exploring the country’s integration into the international maritime world. The report includes estimations of numbers of crew and officers in the Finnish Merchant Marine during this era of growth and provides information on social structure, ages, wages and working conditions while addressing the difficulties in presenting complete and reliable data.

Keywords:   Finnish Sailors, Finnish Shipping History, Finnish Merchant Marine, Finnish Labour Market
