Centre for Digital Heritage 2019


Monday 24 June 2019, 1.00PM to 19:00

In recent years the Centre for Digital Conference has been hosted by our international partners but in 2019 the international conference will take a break. We consider this the perfect opportunity to reinvigorate the Centre for Digital Heritage in York by holding an internal event. We are hosting a half day conference in the afternoon of Monday 24th June 2019 at King’s Manor. The conference will consist of short introductory papers discussing the variety of projects ongoing or completed across the University. It will conclude with a wine reception, demonstrations and launch of the new Digital Archaeology and Heritage Lab at King’s Manor.

Registration: It is free to register for the event but places are limited. Visit our registration page to book your tickets now.

Location: Philip Rahtz Lecture Theatre K/133, King's Manor, University of York

Admission: Free
