Forthcoming Conferences

September 7, 2019

Two very interesting conferences are taking place in the East Midlands this autumn.

On Saturday October 5th, 9am – 5pm the East Midlands Historic Environment Research Framework conference will take place at Teaching and Learning Building, University of Nottingham, University Park, Nottingham, NG7 2RD

CBA East Midlands will be jointly hosting the conference about how recent work has advanced our understanding of the research questions that have been highlighted in the East Midlands Historic Environment Research Framework (EMHERF). It will include demonstrations of the online Research Framework and displays of recent projects, with presentations focusing on the post-glacial period.

The CBA EM autumn conference, in co-operation with Ice Age Journeys, will be on Saturday November 23rd from 10.30am to 5.30pm, at Newark Academy, London Road, Newark, Notts NG24 3AL.

The theme is Sites and skills of the late Ice Age. The conference will showcase some of the results from an HLF-funded enterprise to link the Ice Age Journeys project at Farndon Fields with the major Ice Age sites at Bradgate Park and Creswell Crags. The project has focused on mapping the Ice Age landscape and exploring past culture by making replica artefacts for use in resource boxes for primary schools. A flyer can be downloaded at:
