75th Anniversary Debates: Institute of Archaeology Lecture Theatre - G6

The debates are a series of 'Question Time' style debates, where key public and professional figures will consider a series of major themes relating to the role of archaeology in the modern world.  Each debate will commence at 6.15pm in the Archaeology Lecture Theatre G6, followed by a drinks reception.


Monday 5 March: Presenting the Past 

Panel Members:

Chris Chippindale (CHAIR), as a curator in a university museum, works every day in presenting the past; as a historian of archaeology, especially of Stonehenge with its 800 years of heritage and interpretation, he knows well how much that past shifts with changing presents.

Lisa Westcott Wilkins FRSA is currently the Legacy Manager for the LOCOG Cultural Olympiad team, and has just completed the Clore Leadership Programme as the 2011 Heritage and Conservation Fellow. Her previous experience includes four years as Editor of Current Archaeology, as well as other leadership positions in museums and the culture sector. She has an MA Archaeology with Distinction from UCL.

Robert Bewley is Director of Operations at the Heritage Lottery Fund. Having originally trained as an archaeologist he worked for the RCHME and English Heritage; when not at work he can be found (still) doing aerial archaeology – often in the UK and also in Jordan.

David Clarke worked, until 2011, for all of his career (42 years) at the National Museums of Scotland, the last 30 of them as Keeper of Archaeology. During that time he co-ordinated a number of major exhibitions, most notably Symbols of Power at the time of Stonehenge and in the 1990s he was Head of Exhibitions for the Museum of Scotland Project. More recently, he has been leading the Glenmorangie Research Project on Early Historic Scotland.

Dominic Tweddle is Director of the Royal Naval Museums and has a long experience of presenting the past to the public.
