ARCHAEOLOGY AND MANAGEMENT OF CHANGE IN CHURCHES AND CATHEDRALS
The annual conference of the Association of Diocesan and Cathedral
CHESTER, 25th - 26th OCTOBER 2002
Cathedrals and churches are undergoing more rebuilding and renovation
now than they have been for most of the past century. Around them, towns
are being developed, improved, pedestrianised. This conference is aimed
primarily at all who work with churches and cathedrals, either as
archaeological advisors to the churches, or as town or county planning
archaeologists who have a historic church to work round or with.
The conference, to be held in Chester on 25-26 October 2002, is open to
all archaeologists. Accommodation is included for those who wish.
The provisional programme is in six sessions:
Friday 25 October starting at 11 a.m.
