WARDSEND WOMBLES WORK SESSION/CLEAN UP: SATURDAY 16TH JUNE AT 10.00 AM – 12.00PM
All welcome. Help us to tidy and spruce up. No experience necessary.
This 2-day conference on the theme of ‘Investigating Tree Archaeology’, was held in Sheffield in May 2018. It looked at the archaeology and heritage at the core of understanding treescapes (past and present). Our aim was to raise awareness of the overlaps and potential for synergies across different specialisms, to increase the level of discussion to inform current and future practice. The conference, through a mixture of plenary and parallel sessions and field visit, enabled around 100 participants to hear a range of speakers on various aspects of tree and woodland archaeology.
The conference gallery has been added to the Projects & Events Galleries page and can been found via the 2018 tab:
