Craig Spence - The Impact of Cross-Disciplinary Conservation on Social Development 16th & 17th May at the UCL Institute of Archaeology

Craig Spence (Bishop Grosseteste University, UK)
Open lab project: successfully addressing the skills deficit of volunteer community archaeologists in Lincolnshire

Spence discusses a programme of practical support, skills training and awareness raising among local community archaeology groups developed by a team of academics and archaeologists at Bishop Grosseteste University (Lincoln, UK). The programme, known as the ‘Open Lab Project’, successfully engaged five local groups from across the geographically extensive rural county of Lincolnshire. The aim was to provide the volunteers with the knowledge, skills and resources to work in an independent manner. Equally important outcomes were an increased sense of self-worth and physical and mental wellbeing amongst a number of the participants.
