Discovering the Hidden Heritage of the Broads

Saturday afternoon on 30 June sees a free event at the Thomas Paine Study Centre at the University of East Anglia (UEA), comprising five talks to launch Broads Hidden Heritage, a package of local history and archaeology training and research projects led by Norfolk County Council in conjunction with colleagues from UEA.

Speakers include Professor Rob Liddiard on Second World War Archaeology in the Broads and Professor Tom Williamson on The Landscape History of the Broadland Marshes. Other topics include Aerial Archaeology, Waterways and Waterside Heritage, and Community Archaeology.

The afternoon will introduce forthcoming day schools and opportunities to get involved. These projects are a part of the wider Water, Mills and Marshes Broads Landscape Partnership Scheme, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.  

Will Burchnall, Programme Manager for Water, Mills and Marshes said of the upcoming event,

“We’re absolutely delighted to be able to offer this fantastic free event. It promises to be a really memorable day, with a focus on an array of Broads National Park features which are truly unique. We would really encourage people to come along and be inspired by the enthusiasm of our brilliant speakers!”  

Refreshments will be included.
