Event description

Description

Dr James Hales (UCL, Institute of Archaeology) will present his research focusing on issues related to bats in churches and the complex interactions that take place between bats, people and religious heritage. The talk will summarize a recently completed five-year research project investigating “damage” caused to the historic fabric of listed buildings in the UK by resident bat populations. While the work focuses primarily on stone, wood and metal surfaces, the research is of interest to conservators dealing with other types of material exposed to bat droppings and urine.

Dr James Hales has for the past nineteen years worked at the UCL, Institute of Archaeology. He is currently employed as a Senior Teaching Fellow with responsibility for teaching and coordinating courses for the MA and MSc programs in archaeological and heritage conservation. His specific areas of responsibility are conservation materials science and analysis, preventive conservation, onsite conservation and the remedial treatment of cultural heritage material.

Drinks and snacks will be available after the talk.
