Newsletters and stuff

As ever we get a lot of newsletters and so on from a number of organisations - and thanks to all of them.

LAMAS Newsletter - this covers archaeology in London but also produces an excellent list of historical talks at various societies round the capital - of Greenwich interest please note.

"Maritime Greenwich" talk by David Challis. Docklands History Group, 2nd November . Museum of London in Docklands, North Quay No.1.Warehouse, Hertsmere Road, E14. 5.30 for 6. Info 020 7286 0196

"Recent work at Belmarsh: London's Earliest Trackway Unearthed" Diccon Hart 7th September at Orpington & District Archaeological Society, The Priory, Church Hill, Orpington 8 pm 020 8402 4157

INDUSTRIAL ARCHAEOLOGY NEWS - Generally this national IA body ignores Greenwich (along with the rest of London) but Robert Carr has submitted a brief note about the bi-centenary of William Armstrong. Armstrong of course played a major role in the Royal Arsenal - where there is of course the Armstrong Building.
Greenwich Industrial History Society has now booked Henrietta Heald to talk to us about Armstrong on 17th July 2012.

GLIAS NEWSLETTER AUGUST 2011. Shame on you GLIAS! not a single mention of Greenwich and/or Woolwich in this issue. What are you thinking of.
Plenty more though which can be accessed via www.glias.org.uk
Also note there is a Treasure Hunt let by Chris and Fiona Grabham in the Paddington area on 1st October. (Chris was, of course, one of our founder members)

REDRIFFE CHRONICLE - nice to see the re-emergence of this newsletter from one of our nearest neighbour organisations in Rotherhithe and Bermondsey
