Ironbridge World Heritage Conference

We were very pleased to be involved in the exciting World Heritage Conference at Ironbridge last weekend. The conference went extremely well and enabled new contacts to be made and existing ones to be strengthened. Of particular interest was contribution to, and discussion about, community archaeology with colleagues from the United States and elsewhere. It was also nice to see Charlotte Andrews from the Bermuda Maritime Museum, and we had some interesting discussions about archaeology on Bermuda (for which see the items on our Bermuda and Contemporary archaeology blogs).

So congratulations to John Carman, David de Haan, Roger White and their colleagues at Birmingham and Ironbridge for an excellent conference.
