From Frosterley’s fields to seaplanes at Shields – this and next week in CBA North

CBA North News

Some might say that this is the best time of year. The last of summer proper through the day and the the resumption of local group’s talks at night. Just a short email this time round to let you know of two things later this week and at the start of next which might convince you that it is.

Best wishes,

‘Arch & Arch’ Lecture
The next of the Architectural and Archaeological Society of Durham and Northumberland’s lectures is on this Saturday afternoon. Details for the society, and their other lectures, can be found through their entry in our Local Societies and Groups, as well as Events, pages on our website.


Seaplanes at Shields
The next CITiZAN recording day in CBA North’s region can be found in the poster below for next week. There were a number of seaplane and airship bases across the CBA North region during World War One, but little remains of them. This is your chance to record something of one of them before it is too late.

Transmit/Receive – Making and Experimenting with First World War Sound Technology.‏

Transmit/Receive – Making and Experimenting with First World War Sound Technology.

Sound recording professionals Tim Shaw, John Bowers and Tom Schofield are going to deliver two workshops to explore and rebuild sound technologies of the First World War. The workshops take place on the 25th October and the 8th November. The First World War was a period of great technological innovation. Many of the communication devices were developed to generate or listen to sound. From radio broadcasts to early underwater microphones, listening was a key strategy in the war effort.
 Workshops are £6 each (plus online booking fee). Advance booking is essential. Places for workshops are limited. Each session covers different making activities – you are encouraged to attend both although you can also attend one or the other. No prior specialist or technical knowledge is needed to attend and materials are included in the price. All attendees must be aged 16 and over to attend.
