About the December Forum

Presented by Deirdre O’Sullivan (Archaeology, University of Leicester)

Coventry Guildhall

In the 21st century the phrase ‘our urban heritage’ invites questions at many levels, not just about who is ‘our’ and what is ‘heritage’ but also about the role of  expert voices, community groups and individuals  in determining what is valued and conserved for the future – and what is not.

This seminar will explore the values that are often linked to medieval buildings and below-ground archaeology in urban stories, and what this holds for the future of our  townscapes, drawing principally on Leicester and Coventry, but with some broader analogies.

About This Month’s Presenter

Deirdre O’Sullivan is a Lecturer in Archaeology in the School of Archaeology and Ancient History. She has previously worked as a field archaeologist and as a post-excavation researcher at Durham and St Andrews. Read more about Deidre on the Leicester University website.
