Dear all,

Wikimedia UK and the National Maritime Museum would like to invite you to an editathon in Greenwich on the 15th April re the Board of Longitude. Our partners at the NMM are supplying lunch and several experts on the subject who want to improve Wikipedia's coverage of the search for longitude.

Experienced Wikipedia editors would be very welcome.

The registration page is at  the project page which includes articles we hope to work on is here, There is also a talkpage which gives opportunities to ask questions to some experts from the museum.

Lunch will be provided by our partners the National Maritime Museum.

The National Maritime Museum is the world's largest maritime museum, "filled with inspirational stories of exploration and endeavour at sea and packed to the gunwales with intriguing objects and fascinating galleries".

The Board of Longitude were the administrators of a prize for the development of accurate ways to determine longitude, and thereby the sponsors of some major scientific and exploratory discoveries that had an important impact on world history.
