Event description

Description

Jonathan Betts is a Curator Emeritus at Royal Museums, Greenwich following 35 years as Head of the Horology Department based at the Royal Observatory as well as acting as a Horological Advisor to the National Trust. His talk will focus on the extraordinarily varied historic houses owned by the National Trust which contain an equally varied and representative group of horological artefacts. From the humble alarm clocks used by the servants to wake up in the early mornings to the grand longcase clocks in the state rooms, from personal watches worn by famous figures of the past to the large turret clocks in stable blocks, the Trust’s clocks and watches form a complete range of examples, ideal to illustrate the history of timekeeping in England from the late middle ages to the 20th century
