Sat., 20 January, 1-3pm: Tools of the trade (Workshop at the Creekhouse, Ghent).
This is the fourth offering in our popular series "History as Ecology" by Conrad Vispo. Please make sure to register for this free event to reserve a space. We will provide registrants with location details and background information the week before the event.
Now for something completely different - bring your lap tops and smart phones, and we’ll help you fire up your time machine. This is an indoor workshop describing some of the available tools and resources you might use to understand the history of land you are interested in. (For those of you who attended one of the first two walks, this is where we’ll dive into the E of M.A.P.L.E.S.; if you don’t understand what that means, don’t worry.) We’ll plan to describe some of the tricks and tips we’ve stumbled on, and hope you will be willing to share yours too.
While there are no pre-requisites, basic computer skills will help you get the most out of this.
