UCL Institute for Sustainable Heritage is pleased to announce the programme for our upcoming virtual guest lecture series.

Each year we invite speakers from across the heritage sector and beyond to speak on a range of topics covering all aspects of heritage science, cultural heritage policy and practice.

Each lecture is free and open to all, and this year will be taking place via Zoom.

We particularly encourage our staff, students, alumni, external partners and friends of the Institute, as well as colleagues from across BSEER, The Bartlett faculty and UCL, to join us online for a series of promising talks.

Full details of speakers and topics will be released throughout the year.
