Heritage Week 2022 will see a number of our academics represent their fascinating work that empowers and protects heritage within Portsmouth and beyond.

Each day will explore a different key theme: Valuing Heritage, Conservation Science, Community Heritage, Oral Histories, and Heritage Digital.

Enjoy a light lunch before each talk, then chat with the academics about how their work supports heritage in the local community and beyond.

This event is organised by the Heritage Hub at the University of Portsmouth and is open to staff and members of the public.

All the events take place in Eldon Building’s West Wing, accessed via the entrance on Middle Street. If you’re unable to attend in person, you can also join us online by registering for a digital ticket!
