The Centre for Applied Heritage Studies (CAHSt) draws together CHM research and teaching into a coherent and ambitious focus group within the Department of Archaeology, and with connections extending across the heritage sector and to other universities. Together we believe that, beyond its economic significance, heritage matters and that it plays a vital role in the sustainable management of change for the benefit of society. University teaching staff, research students, visiting staff and fellows populate the Centre, all united in recognising the need to combine theoretical principles with working practice, and to develop cross-disciplinary and international research collaboration.
