Archaeology Symposium - Mixed Ingredients

The programme of the Archaeology Symposium, to be held in Devizes on Saturday 14 November, is starting to be firmed up!

The Symposium will be titled 'Mixed Ingredients: creating partnerships for an integrated approach to the Historic Environment'. It will examine current and potential projects and policies which promote the protection, promotion and participation in the Historic Environment. Presentations will cover scientific collaboration, activities for young people, estate management, local volunteer groups, archaeological archives, outcomes of the Portable Antiquities Scheme, the repatriation of human remains debate and World Heritage Site issues, including the proposed new Visitor Centre at Stonehenge.

The programme is being developed by Gill Swanton, chair of the Archaeology Committee of the Society, and Melanie Pomeroy-Kellinger, the County Archaeologist.
