On the 13th and 14th October 2015, SEAHA welcomed a group of 30 students, project supervisors and colleagues to Brighton for the Annual SEAHA Residential. Over the course of the two days in Brighton, students received a detailed overview of the SEAHA Programme, met with project supervisors to discuss their projects and visited the Royal Pavilion and Brighton Museum. In addition, students were up early on the 14th to partake in a SEAHA photo shoot with the Mobile Heritage Lab (MHL). Professor David Arnold, SEAHA Co Director (Brighton) said: “It was a delight to host the residential and to meet the new SEAHA intake. I hope they were as inspired by the conversations and the heritage that Brighton has to offer as we were by talking to them and seeing their enthusiasm for their proposed research.”
On the 15th October it was back to London for the annual meeting of the SEAHA Advisory Board, chaired by Sir Philip Campbell, Editor-in-Chief, Nature. The new students impressed the Advisory Board with presentations on their research projects, in addition to a display and discussion of Research Posters by the first cohort of SEAHA students, now in Year 2.
