Heritage Chat 2008: 14-16 November 2008

This year’s CHAT (Contemporary and Historical Archaeological Theory) will be held at University College London, 14-16 November 2008
Co-hosted by UCL Centre for Museums, Heritage and Material Culture Studies, Atkins and English Heritage, CHAT will this year be themed around ‘heritage’. The conference will address the archaeology of the historic and recent past, and explore links with other disciplines including geography and architectural history. Alongside diverse and challenging papers, CHAT will also include an afternoon of location based events designed to allow participants to interact with London’s varied heritage and each other, and confront first hand the capital’s changing physical environment. From the Victorian East End to the Olympic barrier, from the pop shadows of Soho to the champagne bar at St Pancras, through the World Wars and the Cold War, CHAT is taking to the streets to reassess archaeology and heritage as we know it.
Registration for Heritage CHAT 2008 is now open. Please see details on the Institute of Archaeology Events Page:
