Join us for this free online webinar to hear about the recent Europa Nostra Awards/European Heritage Award Special Mentions Research project.

The Crossroads of Empires Project is a research collaboration between Dr Daniel Reynolds (Birmingham), Prof.ssa Francesca Dell'Acqua, (Università di Salerno) and Prof.ssa Chiara Lambert (Università di Salerno), Prof. Alessandro di Muro (Università di Basilicata), and a number of higher education institutions across the UK, Italy and the Czech Republic.

The project draws together over a decade of research at San Michele and the recent archaeological and spectroscopic research at Sant’Ambrogio (2017-2020), aims to raise academic and public awareness of these two important early medieval sites and to create a sustainable heritage management plan in  collaboration with the local authorities. 

Daniel is co-director of the “Crossroads of Empires Project”, which focuses on two ninth-century Lombard sites in the Provinicia di Salerno: the Lombard church of Sant’Ambrogio, Montecorvino Rovella and the nearby site of San Michele sul Tusciano in Olevano.

This event hosted by the SPAB, Europa Nostra UK and English Heritage.  A recording will be available to view after the lecture has finished airing.

Project Iron Bridge - Saving an Industrial Icon, Online Lecture

Available to view until 31/07/20

Free

Join us for this free online webinar to hear about the recent Europa Nostra Awards/European Heritage Award winning conservation project led by English Heritage

The Iron Bridge is the world's first bridge constructed of iron, and a symbol of the Industrial Revolution. Since its completion in 1779 it has faced many challenges, with stresses in the ironwork dating from the original construction compounded by ground movement in the Ironbridge Gorge, and a 19th century earthquake. The bridge was in full use for over 150 years, by ever-increasing traffic, before being designated an Ancient Monument and closed to vehicles in 1934. After surveys discovered dangerous structural cracks, English Heritage embarked on the largest conservation project in its history, preserving the Iron Bridge for the future.

Sara Crofts, Chair of Europa Nostra UK, will introduce the Europa Nostra Awards/European Heritage Awards, giving a brief introduction to the awards programme and how to apply for the 2021 awards. We will then hear from Head Collections Curator at English Heritage Matt Thompson who will speak about the history of the structure, the conservation work undertaken and the future of the industrial icon, finishing the lecture with a Q&A session. 

This event hosted by the SPAB, Europa Nostra UK and English Heritage.  A recording will be available to view after the lecture has finished airing.
