Portsmouth is a port city on the south coast of England in the county of Hampshire. Portsmouth (Population 2014: 209,085) is located mainly on Portsea Island, making it the only island city in the United Kingdom. Habitation in the area dates at least to Roman times when they constructed a fort at nearby Portchester called Portus Adurni. Despite Portsmouth not being mentioned in the Domesday book, it is referenced in an Anglo-Saxom chronicle from 501. During the 8th and 9th centuries the south coast of England was vulnerable to attack from Danish Viking invasion fleets. It is known that Portsmouth was assaulted and conquered by Danish pirates in 787 and the area plundered in 838 by a Danish fleet. In 1001 the Danes pillaged Hampshire, razing towns to the ground, including Portsmouth. Although the Danes were massacred the following year, they attacked many more times until the Norman Conquest in 1066.

In the 13th century King John’s desire to invade Normandy resulted in the first permanent naval base being constructed, with the docks being built from 1212 onwards. Not only was Portsmouth a base for the naval fleet to attack European powers, by the 14th century it had become an important commercial port importing goods such as, large quantities of French wine as well as wool, grain, wheat, woad, wax and iron. The French fleet destroyed much of the town when it attacked in 1338, before the Black Death killed many inhabitants 10 years later. The French saw Portsmouth’s growth as a threat, sacking the town three more times before the end of the century. In the 1418 the building of first permanent fortifications commenced and were completed eight years later. The worlds first, and oldest existing, dry dock was then built, producing the first warship in 1497. Since then Portsmouth has been synonymous with the British fleet, home to many famous ships and captains, such as the Mary Rose, Captain Cook’s HMS Endeavour and Captain Bligh’s HMS Bounty.
The Portsmouth Naval Dockyard employs approximately a tenth of the city’s workforce, with many other defence related industries located closeby, currently constructing two aircraft carriers. IT and financial institutions have bases in the city. Retail parks also form a large part of the economy, several on redeveloped dockyards. Tourism also forms a significant part of the economy, with many ferries using the port.
