From sorcery to super computers: the story of weather as told through a selection of treasures from The National Meteorological Archive

A free lunchtime talk in connection with Manuscripts and Special Collections’ latest exhibition, Weather Extremes: Making and breaking records in Nottinghamshire.

The National Meteorological Archive in Exeter holds materials ranging from a 12th century illuminated manuscript of a work by the patron saint of Natural Sciences to the tender for the first Met Office Super Computer. Using a selection of unique treasures from the archive this talk by Catherine Ross aims to present a brief overview of developments in meteorology from the work of the Aristotle to the dawn of the computing age.
