    Meetings in London
    From: George Huxtable
    Date: 2006 Nov 2, 22:11 -0000

    This is a reminder to anyone within striking distance of London in a 
    couple of weeks time.
    The one-day symposium, on "Navigational instruments as a source of 
    historical information", will be held at the National Maritime Museum, 
    Greenwich, on Thursday, 16th November. Besides me and my wife Joan, 
    there will be several other NavList contributors or lurkers, that I 
    know of. One other from England, one from Scotland, and one from the 
    border between them. One from Germany, one from Holland, and one from 
    Australia. And those are just the ones with a NavList connection. So 
    it will be a cosmopolitan gathering.
    The symposium will cost �15 (including lunch and refreshments)
    To book a place please contact:
    Janet Norton, Research Administrator, National Maritime Museum, 
    Greenwich LONDON SE10 9NF
    E-mail jnorton@nmm.ac.uk.
    In addition, on the evening of Friday 17 November the Annual Lecture 
    of the Scientific Instrument Society will be given by Dr Willem M�rzer 
    Bruyns, who holds the National Maritime Museum's 2005-07 Sackler 
    Research Fellowship in the History of Astronomy and Navigational 
    Sciences. The talk will focus on the Museum's collection of navigating 
    instruments. This meeting is free for anyone to attend, without 
    prearrangement, and starts at 6 pm. It will be held at the Society of 
    Antiquaries, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1.
