Public Engagement

As a department which prides itself on being friendly and accessible at all levels, our research also is naturally outward-facing and we seek to engage with local, national and international communities in a wide range of ways.

Our research is first and foremost of the highest quality, making a major contribution to knowledge but where we can communicate it to others in ways that inform larger society we seek to do this.  The main ways we do this are through:

Preservation and enrichment of culture and heritage
