Writing Our History and Digging Our Past: Phase 2


Principal Investigator: Dr Richard Gaunt (Nottingham University)
Co-investigators: Dr Chris King
Collaborators: Nottingham City Museums and Galleries; Derbyshire County Record Office; Trent & Peak Archaeology, part of York Archaeological Trust
Duration: 2013

In Phase 2 we are working with 14 groups and running a series of collaborative skills workshops ranging from recording oral testimony, using archives and preserving artefacts, to geophysical archaeological surveys. We are also promoting a ‘Challenge Fund’ that allows groups to draw upon the knowledge and skills of both students and academic staff to provide specialist services and other activities that will extend their projects. Finally, we are aiming to develop long-term relationships with community groups.
