Archaeology Conference 2020

We arrange the Lake District Annual Archaeology Conference to showcase the research that takes place within this rich cultural landscape, which was inscribed as a World Heritage Site in July 2017.

Each year the conference provides an opportunity to learn about recent projects carried out in partnership with local communities and volunteers within the National Park. Many of these have been supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Due to the corona virus and the circumstances that we find ourselves in, we have made the decision to cancel this year’s event. The health and safety of all attendees is paramount and as the situation is so unpredictable, we feel that this is the right decision at this time.

However, we do not want the day to pass without marking it in some way, so this year we are going to release some videos on this page to update everyone on recent work and projects. Please call back here on Saturday 7 November to see what has been happening.

We look forward to welcoming everyone back at the conference next year on Saturday 13 November 2021!
