The names of Armstrong, Swan Hunter, Palmers and others still resound on Tyneside: legacy of an illustrious shipbuilding past.

The 20th century was marked by a steady decline in the industry, which is now just a memory. How did it happen? Could the decline have been avoided? Should we feel responsible?

The answers are far from obvious and research has developed a new perspective that puts the industry, and its potential future, into perspective.
