Abstract

Marine insurance began in the cities of Northern Italy, about the end of the twelfth century. Italian merchants came to the UK in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries and brought with them their trading customs, including marine insurance. Initially merchants entered into marine insurance contracts as incidental to their general trading activities and later specialised in this business.
