Vacant position on Council

The trustees thank Alistair Graham Kerr for his work organising excursions during the past three years. His resignation means the Society needs someone to arrange excursions for the summer months of 2018. The role will be one of co-ordinator, with other members of Council helping to provide venues and lead tours. Depending on the venue, the role may involve booking the visits, advising on travel, ensuring parking, toilet facilities and refreshments are available; arranging for expert guides if possible, or printing  information sheets, as an ‘added value’ component of the visit; issuing  notices to the membership and advertising excursions on the website and by e-mail. Applications should be sent to the Hon.Gen.Secretary, Edmund Perry at secretary@nnas.info

Late Summer Excursion

There are still places left on our four-day excursion to Inverness. The programme is available here, or you can contact the treasurer to book your place.

CBA's Home Front Legacy Project

The Home Front Legacy project helps local communities find out about, and map, the remains of the First World War, and raise awareness of the wide range of archaeology that survives across the UK. There are a number of ways you can get involved and NNAS encourages members to take part:

  • Have a look at the website and see what has already been recorded near you.
  • Work with your local branch of the Young Archaeologists Club using our resources for young people: www.yac-uk.org/hfl-explorer-hq
  • Share information about the project with your members and encourage them to get involved via your newsletters and social media.

To find out more please take a look at the Home Front Legacy website where you will find out all about the recording app, be able to search the sites that have been recorded so far, access useful resources, and discover all the latest news and research via our blog. When you do get involved, please share your pictures and news about what you have been doing on our social media sites.

To spread the word about this project, and get more people involved, we want to build up our network of Home Front Legacy Champions. We would like to find five champions in each region of England, who have made an outstanding contribution to the project by inspiring and supporting others to get involved, researching the history of sites, or showing a high standard of recording. They might be members of CBA groups, county, or local societies, or from another First World War project. If you know someone who would make a great champion please contact Claire Corkill

If you have any questions about recording or using the app you can contact Chris Kolonko, our Home Front Legacy Project Officer.
