The North East of England has a rich astronomical heritage and this talk will examine a timeline which started in the Neolithic period right up to modern day research and the recent explosion in Astro tourism in our region.
In this talk Graham will look at the people, organisations, places and practices which have often gone uncelebrated.
It’s not often that the Venerable Bede and Computational Cosmology feature in the same lecture!
Graham hopes to see you there.
