London Archaeologist's Annual Lecture and General Meeting will be online this year, with the AGM at 7pm, followed by the Annual Lecture.
For this year's Annual Lecture, Stephanie Ostrich will present
Making heritage work for communities: Walworth Heritage Action Zone: heritage-led regeneration and community engagement in one of London’s historic high streets.
Heritage Action Zones (HAZs) have been rolled out in four phases over the last few years: the first Greater London HAZ was Sutton in Round 1; the first inner London one was Walworth as part of Round 2. This is a particularly fitting subject where Covid has taken its toll on all the country's high streets.
Stephanie Ostrich specialises in public heritage and archaeology and supporting community-led research. Originally from across the pond, she has worked in British archaeology for 13 years. She has managed several community heritage projects including award-winning community archaeology and volunteer programme CITiZAN (the Coastal and Intertidal Zone Archaeological Network), the Temple of Mithras oral history project, and since 2019 has managed the Walworth Heritage Action Zone, a heritage-led regeneration and community initiative with Southwark Council, Historic England and our community partners.
The short AGM will commence at 7pm, followed by the Annual Lecture and will take place on Zoom. Register using the button below to receive the link to join beforehand.
