A-Z LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Local Society: Lincoln

Category Antiquity

'AMES was born in 1987 and expanded from the small band of class attendees and local interested people into a national society of around 100 members. The aim of the Society, as stated in its Constitution, was, and still is, to promote and encourage interest in the History, Archaeology and Cultures of the ancient civilisations of the Near East. The new society was unique in the UK in embracing all countries of the Ancient Near East, including Egypt. We believe it is currently unique in this respect ... Benefits of Membership include ... talks by speakers who are acknowledged experts in their fields – at reduced members’ rates.'

'A place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to have a conversation about the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings have taken place in cafes, bars, restaurants, theatres, libraries and even out of doors, but always outside a traditional academic context ... Audiences are people who are interested in science. Anyone can participate; speakers are there to be questioned and talk about their work at all levels.'

'Founded in 1942, at the height of the Second World War and the Holocaust, by Archbishop William Temple and Chief Rabbi Joseph Hertz ... Our aim is for Jews and Christians to meet, to understand each other better and to create meaningful engagement between the communities. We have grown into a nationwide network of 30 active branches around the UK, complemented by a professional team that run national programmes in education, dialogue and social action - for Rabbis and clergy, community leaders, students, policy makers, CCJ members and those of all faiths and none.'

'We inspire, enable and encourage people to get involved with history, whether in the classroom, at college, in the library or at home. We passionately believe the study of history should be accessible to all people at all levels of study ... The Historical Association is an active organisation with events happening up and down the UK. The local branches all have a lively lecture programme open to both members of the association and any general member of the public wishing to come along.'

'The aim of the Club is to share knowledge and experience amongst all members in a friendly atmosphere. We encourage our members’ interests in all aspects of photography by means of various events and exhibitions. Competitions are regularly held amongst our members for both prints and projected digital images. Our programme includes a mix of lectures, practical evenings and demonstrations showing how to get the best from your camera, computer or prints. New members are always welcome, just come along to try us out for a couple of weeks before deciding if you wish to commit to membership.'

'Founded in 1990, the Lincolnshire Family History Society covers Holland, Kesteven & Lindsey, the three parts of our Historic County.'

'RB Camera Group is a long-established photography club catering for beginners and experienced photographers alike. Weekly meetings are held in Nettleham Village Hall, Lincoln with a full programme of quality speakers, practical demonstrations and competitions.
