The Forgotten State of Industry? Irish Industrial Landscapes in a Global Context
18 - 19 October 2013
Wicklow Mountains, Ireland
Featuring a keynote presentation by leading industrial archaeologist, Professor Marilyn Palmer, this two day international conference brings together an exceptional group of speakers from across Ireland, Europe and beyond, providing a unique opportunity to share experiences of conserving, managing and presenting our historical industrial landscapes, many of which in Ireland are poorly understood and vulnerable. Funded by the InterReg 4A (Ireland-Wales) Metal Links: Forging Communities Together project, with additional support from the Heritage Council, Wicklow County Council and The Gathering Fund, the conference is being organised by community group, Glens of Lead, a partner in the Metal Links project.
This conference represents exceptional value for money. The themes covered will be of interest not only to professionals and academics, but also to anyone involved in promoting or managing historical structures and landscapes. There is no fee for attending, only a charge to cover refreshments, lunches and dinner. Places are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment!
The venue is the Glendalough Hotel in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains, Ireland, one hour south of Dublin.
