World Class Heritage: a conference on the archaeology of York

Friday 30 September 2011, 9.00AM

Speaker: A panel of distinguished speakers including Prof. Martin Carver, Dr Peter Addyman, Dr Allan Hall, &c &c ...

In 2011 it will be twenty years since the publication of the York Development and Archaeology Study - the 'Ove Arup' report. To mark this important anniversary, City of York Council and the York Archaeological Forum which advises City of York Council on archaeological and historic environment matters, is organising a conference bringing together a broad spectrum of interested parties to launch the process of reviewing the Ove Arup report and developing a new strategy for the city's archaeology and historic environment.

A panel of distinguished speakers has been invited to look back at achievements since 'Ove Arup' was published and to set out a programme for the future. This will be done by examining aspects of York's archaeology and historic environment in respect of:

key projects and research themes; management, practice and presentation.

There will also be facilities in the conference venue for the display of material relating to projects in the city and environs.
