    Dr Mike Esbester is senior lecturer in History at the University of Portsmouth, and one of the co-leads of the 'Railway Work, Life & Death' project www.railwayaccidents.port.ac.uk

    Mike will introduce railway staff accidents and the dangers of railway work before the Second World War. He will discuss the 'Railway Work, Life & Death' project, which is documenting employee accidents in Britain and Ireland for this period, and the various resources it offers for family historians. Taking a Portsmouth slant on the national industry, Mike will put the city and area in its wider context and the social history of railway work. Finally, Mike will discuss the 'Historians Collaborate' agenda, and how different types of historian can work together better.
