The Regional Historic Environment Research Framework for the East of England is currently undergoing a comprehensive review, funded by Historic England.
The aim of this project, developed by ALGAO East of England supported by Historic England, is to produce an updated Historic Environment Research Framework that encompasses the needs of the historic environment sector in the East of England. The project will establish an accessible, interactive Framework that can be readily updated and sustained beyond the lifespan of the project. The Framework will make use of an online hub developed collaboratively with Historic England which will bring together disparate resources for anyone engaged in historic environment research in the region.
The workshops for this review will take place in autumn 2018, as follows:
