The conference commemorates three important dates in the Gibraltar history calendar: the first is the end of the Great Siege in 1783 (240 years), the longest siege in British military history. The second is the discovery of the famous Gibraltar 1 Neanderthal skull in 1848 (175 years); the third is the start of works related to the construction of the Gibraltar Dockyard in 1893 (130 years). Even if, at first sight, these three anniversaries may seem unrelated, they are, in fact, interwoven. The conference will adopt the interdisciplinary approach that has characterized the work of the Gibraltar National Museum in recent decades and which has made it a world-renowned institution. The conference will have three sections. The first will cover military history, the second the history of science, and the third will cover heritage aspects that will bring all the themes together.
