Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Attempting to establish a link between environmental history and contemporary debates surrounding the environmental management is and important part of the AHRC research network Histories of Environmental Change. This network project has explored these issues by bringing together a group of historians from different backgrounds to study three localities with unique environmental histories with non-academic stakeholders. These localities are the wetlands of Wicken Fen in East Anglia, the uplands of the Quantock Hills in Somerset and Kielder Forest in Northumberland. The aim is to place these specific sites within a wider global narrative of environmental change and to bring out connections with places elsewhere and the three English locations.
