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

Dana Goodburn-Brown (CSI: Sittingbourne Project, UK)
Conservation as a retail opportunity

Goodburn-Brown discusses the original motivations, operational logistics, and issues of long term sustainability for the shopping mall conservation project, CSI: Sittingbourne. This is an archaeological conservation partnership, which originated following the unexpected discovery of a large high status 6th-7th century Anglo-Saxon cemetery in Kent, England. The paper presents views on how the project fits into a niche within the changing role of town centre shopping precincts - providing an interesting, participatory, social and educational venue for the community. It also discusses how the project partners worked together to create an innovative exhibition and conservation facility to conserve the 2,500 grave finds.
