The Dreadnought Project is a naval history wiki focusing on naval history in the period 1880-1920, with a side-project in 3D simulation.

The wiki started in 2006 and now comprises articles on over 8,300 people and 5,000 ships. We have listed over 22,000 ship captains and linked and cited our articles profusely.

The Dreadnought Project is intended to augment rather than compete with the vast information available on Wikipedia, whose policy bar editors from using primary source materials and from doing original research. By contrast, our articles exploit our large and growing library (currently well over 50,000 pages) of original documents, affording a natural opportunity to advance public knowledge by bringing more information out of the world of archives and closed collections and into a place where a Google search can find it.

Our primary editors are Tony Lovell, who specialises in fire control and shipboard equipment, Simon Harley, who writes our biographies, Nick Jellicoe, who is working to create a detailed accounting of the Battle of Jutland to promote a fuller understanding of decisions taken during the battle, and Dr. Christopher Buckey, who is in charge of our U.S Navy content.

If you'd like to become an editor, and you possess a fair amount of zeal, a natural desire to learn and share your discoveries and a willingness to conform to our editorial style and help refine it, please contact us.

If you are a descendant of those featured on this website, and have further questions or material relating to their lives, then please get in touch.
