'Trading In War' makes shortlist for Wolfson History Prize

The shortlist for this year's Wolfson History Prize - the annual celebration of the best non-fiction history books - includes an exploration of eighteenth century London and those who lived and worked on the Thames.

Trading In War gives readers a glimpse of life in the docklands for the sailors, soldiers and landladies of the time.

It was written by Margarette Lincoln - a Visiting fellow at Goldsmiths and formerly of the National Maritime Museum, she's been speaking to Tanya Francis.
