Event - Shared Pasts: democratic traditions in British archaeology (Sheffield)

The conference marks the centenary of the Hunter Archaeological Society by bringing together archaeological and historical societies from around the country. The contributors and delegates at the conference will celebrate the tradition of ‘community heritage’ to which the Society continues to contribute.

The speakers at will review the history of public participation in British archaeology and map out the future for our ‘common heritage’ as the discipline faces economic constraints and challenges to social cohesion. They will also showcase a number of current projects. Speakers include Prof Mike Parker-Pearson (Sheffield University), Melanie Giles (Manchester), David Allen (Hampshire Museum), Anwen Cooper (Oxford), Faye Simpson (Manchester Metropolitan) and Jon Kenny (York Archaeological Trust).
