Because of the difficulty and expense of finding a suitable meeting place in
London, and the poor attendance there in recent years, for a trial
period the Society will be meeting only in Oxford, at the Museum of the
History of Science. This year there will be three meetings to fit in
with the university terms, in November, March and June, although there
may be a fourth meeting in the form of a visit somewhere. Plans for
future years are open to change.
The next meeting will be on 25th November 2017, when James Hester will talk
about 'Forensic Fencing: What can damage on blades tell us about
medieval swordmanship?' See further under Programme.
Membership costs twenty pounds a year to cover the
cost of notification of events and admission to all talks. Admission to
a single talk is five pounds and is free to students (all-day
events may be more and the charge for them will be posted on their
announcement), and everyone is welcome. Both are payable at the door
(please ask for the membership secretary on arrival), or in advance by
cheque made out to:-
