The second Journal of 2019 is being posted this week and colour is a great improvement.
The second Journal of 2019 will be posted early in June and will be the first one in colour.
Our new editor, Clive Woodley, has been working very hard to achieve this after producing his first Journal, Volume 24, in January and has again been ably supported by Kay Smith. Many thanks to both.

The Ho Group, an experimental archaeology group who meet in Denmark and who are committed to research into early artillery and gunpowder, announce their latest, exciting, venture and have invited Ordnance Society members to participate.
Their latest project is to construct a replica of a late medieval reverberatory furnace and cast cannon as close as possible to late medieval and early modern methods and techniques. To this end, they have built an experimental small-scale reverberatory furnace using early 16th century documentation and have invited us to the first, experimental, casting in May 2019.
See the ORDNANCE RELATED EVENTS page for details.
