Event description

Description

The New Forest Knowledge Conference 2017 will celebrate the archaeological and historical research being carried out in and around the New Forest. It will provide an opportunity to find out who is doing what, share the results of recent work, discuss new techniques and approaches and find out how you might get involved in the future.

The conference will run over two days from Friday 27 October through to Saturday 28 October 2017 at the Lyndhurst Community Centre.

As well as presented papers there will be poster displays from local community groups and students and various display stands. We will aim to ensure there is enough time for you to enjoy these and also to chat with other individuals and representatives from local community groups and organisations.

Tickets

Day tickets cost £20, but we hope you will be able to join us for both days.

To encourage this we have set the two day ticket at £30.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

New Forest Knowledge

New Forest Knowledge is a partnership between two projects within the Heritage Lottery Funded programme ‘Our Past, Our Future Landscape Partnership’: Ecademy, led by the New Forest Centre, and Heritage on my Doorstep, led by the National Park Authority. Both projects have the aim to make the unique heritage of the New Forest more accessible to all across a variety of levels and interest. Ecademy seeks to promote information sharing and integration through the creation of on-line resources; Heritage on my Doorstep seeks to engage the local community in researching and sharing the history and archaeology of the New Forest.
