CBA North Committee,
Arch & Arch Society lecture – this afternoon
The lecture series of many of the local groups within the CBA North network started near the start of the month. Here’s a poster for something happening this afternoon if you are in the area of Durham.
Arch & Arch Society Annual Research Grant
The ‘Arch & Arch’, more officially the Architectural and Archaeological Society of Durham and Northumberland, have written to us of their Annual Research Grant. Jo Shoebridge, their Secretary, writes that the society;
“The Society was founded in 1861 and has, since that time, pursued an active programme of lectures, field trips and publications. Based in Durham, but with interests throughout the region, it aims to provide an opportunity for all those interested in archaeology and architectural history to find out more, visit places of interest and experience hands on activities.
Annual Research Grant
The application process is open for our annual research grant, which welcomes applications for a maximum of £250 for projects based within the North-East of England.
See http://www.aasdn.org.uk/news.htm to read more about the award and how to apply. Please note that the closure date for applications has been extended to the 31st January 2018″.
Further events to come this week
Next week is another busy week to come with lectures. In Durham on Wednesday is this;
…whilst on Thursday is the first 2018 event of our group member the Teesside Archaeological Society* where Professor Tim Thompson will be speaking on Bodies of Evidence (for more on this lecture see here) at Teesside, and on the Saturday in Newcastle is the first 2018 event of the North East Ancient Egypt Society*…
…and that of Tynedale Archaeology* in Hexham that afternoon as well.
As per 2017 there is plenty to get involved in.
