Upcoming Talks and Activities

                 IHNS NEWS:

Our last meeting and talk for the 2016/17 season will be held on Monday, May 1 at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, Halifax. The doors are open at 7-00pm and the meeting begins at 7-30.


We are pleased to welcome as our speaker for the evening Dan Conlin, a longtime IHNS member and advocate for industrial heritage. Currently Curator at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, Dan recently walked the entire 117 kilometres of Hadrian’s Wall in the North of England. Built in 120AD the ‘The Wall’ is not only a major military archaeological site but it passes through many sites of industrial history, including coal mines, shipyards, railways and canals with surprising Nova Scotian connections. This illustrated talk on the industrial history of this great Roman landmark will be one you do not want to miss!


Our May meeting is also the AGM, where we elect the Board for the following year. As I have said many times, you do not need to stay away from the meeting for fear of being press-ganged to serve (and given Dan’s talk, I’m not sure it would be a smart move anyway). However, if you do feel moved to join the Board at this exciting time for IHNS you will be made very welcome and a new perspective is always appreciated.
