The CBA is helping to arrange an exciting one-day conference and workshop on community-led conservation in archaeology, at the Guildhall Arts Centre in Grantham, Lincolnshire on June 24th (2014). The workshop is being organised as a joint event with the Department of Archaeology at the University of York, as part of their ongoing Engaging Conservation project. It will bring together a wide range of experience and advice from key organisations involved in the community-led conservation of different sorts of archaeological sites.
The focus of the workshop will be on sharing experiences and considering important questions about how local groups can get involved in this sort of project, and the real difference local groups can make on the protection and conservation of our important archeological heritage.
The programme will include sessions on built heritage, industrial sites and earthworks and monuments, with presentations and discussion session led by a range of national, regional and local organisations, including the Society for the Preservation of Ancient Buildings (SPAB), Adopt-A-Monument (Archaeology Scotland) the Friends of Ancient Monument Project (CBA Wessex), Heritage Lincolnshire and the Friends of Chainbridge Forge.
