Antiquarian Horological Society AGM (12-13 May, Keele University)

This year’s Antiquarian Horological Society annual meeting takes place on 12–13 May 2018 at Keele University in Staffordshire.

The year 2018 will mark the 250th anniversary of the birth of Edward Massey, a significant and important inventor of a range of horological and nautical devices. The annual meeting will celebrate the contribution of Massey and his family to the field of precision scientific instruments.

There will be a programme of nine lectures across the weekend ranging across subjects from watches and tools to nautical instruments and the role of the state.

All the details are on the AHS website here. Non-AHS members are very welcome indeed.
