Zum Inhalt
The lighthouse service had its beginnings in classical antiquity in the Mediterranean Sea area and the Romans introduced the first lighthouses in the North Sea region at Dover in England in the last first century or early second century AD.

However, the building of lighthouses around the North Sea did not start before the 13th century, when the Hansa florished. The golden age of North Sea lighthouses was the 19th century when the industrial revolution and colonization caused an enormous expansion in merchant shipping.

By the end of the 20th century the transition from terrestrial and astronomical to electronic and satellite navigation systems reduced the need for lightships and lighthouses. Light after light were switched off and many lighthouses ended up as historical monuments.

Given the form of a pictorial narrative this book tells the story of North Sea Lights in the eight countries surrounding our common sea.
