10 September 2001... an archive within an archive
10 – 19 November 2004

10 September 2001... is an attempt to get a snapshot of the activities and life of the residents of an English district on a single day, 10 September 2001; the day before the tragedy of 11 September 2001 in the USA. Many people will remember what they were doing when they heard the news of the 11th, but what is remembered of the day before this event which has influenced so many lives in the intervening years? What was going on during an ordinary day one hour from London, in a landscape marked with the history of England.

10 September 2001... takes a slice of life from births to meetings to events. Is it possible to measure the impact of 11 September 2001 by looking at the everyday events of the day before?

Upstairs Reading Room, East Sussex Record Office

Neville Gabie's 10 September 2001... an archive within an archive raises questions about what things will be important for the librarians/archivists to collect. Join the artist Neville Gabie, Martin Andrews the Deputy Director of the
Centre for Ephemera Studies at Reading University and Elizabeth Hughes, East Sussex County Archivist to an insight into why we might want to keep the seemingly insignificant, like a shop price list, a theatre handbill or your own pocket diary.
Free. Booking advised on 01273 482349.
