Historic reasons for a natural alliance
Organisers: Catherine Cavanagh, Epping Forest, City of London, and Vince Holyoak, English Heritage
Landscape management and recreation offer both protection of and threats to archaeology. Speakers with European, national, local and professional interests will explore the links between the natural and historic environment sectors. The positive contribution of heritage assets to land management and public enjoyment is sometimes ignored. While a wide range of policy and legislation can no longer be treated in isolation. Who’s going to pay for improvements? How do local communities contribute? A review of the session will highlight lessons from past projects and what – with the increasing application of new technologies - the future may hold.
