The Society for Nautical Research was founded in 1910 to promote the academic field of maritime history in the United Kingdom.
The aims of the society are to:
- sponsor events and conferences
- purchase art and artifacts for the National Maritime Museum, which the Society helped to found.
- fund special projects, such as the preservation of HMS Victory, one of the original aims of the society at its foundation.
- Ernest Dade, maritime artist and model maker
Since 2010, the Society has been a co-sponsor of the annual Alan Villiers Memorial Lecture at Oxford.
