Our first joint conference, with the Nautical Archaeology Society, held in Portsmouth during 16th and 17th November, gave the 170 delegates a wide range of talks to digest and enjoy and opportunities to meet old friends and make new ones.
There was a fascinating selection of sponsors’ stands in the entrance foyer where we all learnt about how wonderful some of the new technologies were; and appreciated the enthusiasm of their proponents.
There were also pre- and post- conference events including a tour of Fort Cumberland and Beer and Skittles on the Friday; and tours of Fort Nelson and the Explosion Museum on the Monday.
A few pictures of the event will be put on the PUBLICATIONS page and a piece in the next Newsletter, published in January.
The third Journal of 2019 has just been posted to all members and is also in colour like the previous Volume 25. One of the Ordnance Society flyers has also been included, as has an Ordnance Society business card; please use these to publicise the Society.
The new editor, Clive Woodley, has been working very hard to achieve this, his third Journal in 2019 and has again been ably supported by Kay Smith. Congratulations and thanks to both.
Details of the above conference are on the ORDNANCE RELATED EVENTS page, including the CALL FOR PAPERS.
The “Wooden Walls and Stone Bastions” conference, organised jointly between the Ordnance Society and the Nautical Archaeology Society has tickets available via ‘Eventbrite’. For details, see our events page.
