Back in late October 2013 I was fortunate to be able to attend the “Echoes of the Past” event held at the Lincolnshire Show Ground. One of the most popular exhibitors in the main hall (on the left hand side in the picture) was Lincs to the Past a project run by Lincolnshire Archives showcasing Lincolnshire’s Rich and varied history in a range of archives across the county and beyond.
Therefore I am absolutely delighted to announce that the first of the free Heritage Lottery Fund supported Lincolnshire Age of Scientific Discovery workshops will be held at the Lincolnshire Archives on Saturday 25th January between 12.00 and 3.30pm. Specifically, the session will be in the Lecture Room, Lincolnshire County Archives, St Rumbold Street, Lincoln, LN2 5AB
This session will highlight the different sources available to you and advise on how to the get the best from them, this will include a dedicated look at how to approach archives dating from Newton’s time, the 17th century and a special session looking at the local film archives.
Contributors will include Dr Mike Rogers, Senior Archivist, Lincolnshire County Archives, Dr John Manterfield, a specialist on the built environment in 17th Century Grantham and Steve White, Lincolnshire Film Archives.
Although places are free, tickets must be booked with project manager Ameneh Enayat , [email protected] and are on a first come, first served basis.
