In addition to their academic curricula, SEAHA students have pioneered a wide range of initiatives and public engagement events.

International Conferences on Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage, and Archaeology (SEAHA)

Held since 2015, the conference is an annual event that is quickly becoming an integral component of the community invested in research, innovation and best practice in the interpretation, conservation and management of cultural heritage.  Heritage science is a cross-disciplinary field connecting science and the humanities. The conference aims to provide a platform for scientists, researchers, engineers, professionals, practitioners, entrepreneurs, and policy-makers, to engage and discuss emerging trends in the field.  There is an ongoing dialogue over global issues, which define the research and technological applications of heritage scientists.

Previous events have been held in London and Oxford, and have brought together more than 150 stakeholders in heritage science. The 2017 Conference by the University of Brighton in June.

Heritage Science Research Network (HSRN)

The Heritage Science Research Network aims to:

  • Provide a platform for gathering and engaging heritage science and related researchers, professionals and practitioners for the discussion of innovative research being conducted in the cross-disciplinary field.
  • Connect and stimulate the dialogue between practitioners and academics involved in heritage science and in cultural heritage broadly.
  • Share new knowledge in best practice addressing the scientific and engineering research needs of the arts, heritage and archaeology sectors.

The Heritage Science Podcast

From ancient mummies to crumbling towers, join as the students of SEAHA explore the landscape of heritage science in the brand new Heritage Science Podcast.

Every month, we’ll be talking to heritage practitioners, academics and students, to better understand the subject that straddles the boundary between science and the arts.
