Next Event: The Association for Industrial Archaeology - a Very British affair!: Chelmsford Museum. Saturday 14 November 2015
EIAG Annual Meeting and Lecture
Our next major event is the Annual Meeting and
Lecture on Saturday 14th November at Chelmsford Museum, starting at 12:30pm. We
will begin with a short business session, looking back over the last year and
forward to 2016, plus electing the Committee for the coming year. This year’s
lecture will be given by Keith Falconer, formerly Head of Industrial
Archaeology at (the former) English Heritage and currently Chairman of the
Association for Industrial Archaeology. His lecture is entitled:
The Association for Industrial
Archaeology – a very British affair!
This talk will trace the pioneer development of
industrial archaeology from its tentative beginnings in the late 1950, through
its burgeoning in the 1960s, to the formation of the AIA itself in 1973 and the
AIA’s involvement in the national and international scene thereafter.
The Essex Industrial Archaeology Group is part of the Essex Society for Archaeology and History. The event is free to Members, £2 for non-members. Bookings can be made with Dr Graham
