A half-day workshop (09.30 - 13.00) on Saturday 16th July 2011 offering insights into the challenges and opportunities met by Bible translators in times past and present, with some signposts for the cybernetic future.

The provenance and world-wide influence of the KJV Bible will be discussed in the context of this special workshop, which will be supported by a Powerpoint presentation and table displays.

The session will be led by Dr Barrie Evans, a senior translation consultant to Wycliffe Bible Translators, one of the world's leading agencies currently active in this work.

The venue will be Somerhill House, near Tonbridge (TN11 ONJ) by kind consent of Schools at Somerhill: building of Somerhill began in 1611 (the same year as the KJV was published) by Frances, only daughter of Queen Elizabeth I's famous spy-master Sir Francis Walsingham, and her third husband.

Admission Free, though places must be booked and small contribution on the day to help cover costs of mid session refreshments appreciated. For more details contact Roger Millman on
