Arnold Fairless – History of Timekeeping (Horology)

  • retired history lecturer
  • studies the history of clocks and has an active interest in antique and period clocks
  • volunteer at Beamish Museum with responsibilities both for cataloguing their 230 clocks in storage and for the practical care of their 64 working on-site clocks
  • associate member of the British Horological Institute

Now here’s a subject anyone could come on. Fascinating, even if all you wish to do is work out whether Del Boy’s Harrison watch find was based on fact. Indeed, you are welcome to bring any interesting (portable) clocks you have (working or not) for Arnold’s courses, which have a bit of, er, ‘hands-on’ alongside the wonderful history.
