What our students say

Condition Surveys of Historic Buildings 6-8 April 2016

Overall this was an excellent course which I thoroughly enjoyed, and from which I learned a tremendous amount. I'll be happy to recommend to colleagues and professionals with whom I work.

Assessing Archaeological Significance 25 February 2016

Excellent course - focusses the mind on where true importance and value/insight can be gained from assets with purely archaeological interest only

Law and the Historic Environment 11 March 2016

Excellent course, content was largely relevant to my job as a conservation officer. Lecturers were very fluent and engaging. The informal style of presentation was much appreciated
