Just received details about a meeting organised by the The Institute for the Public Understanding of the Past at The King’s Manor, University of York:
We are delighted to welcome Michael Wood, writer and television presenter, who
will be talking about his Story of England community archaeology project at Kibworth in
Leicestershire and about the role television can play in notions of place, history, and identity.
Other speakers will focus on ongoing community archaeology projects in York and
beyond and include Cath Neal (University of York), Peter Connelly and Jon Kenny
(York Archaeological Trust), Suzie Thomas (Council for British Archaeology) and
Mike Nevell (University of Salford/Dig Manchester).
The focus of the day’s discussion will be the role the material past may play
in furthering strategies of engagement and participation and consideration of the
benefits and outcomes of such projects.
