We are hosting a talk about Ancient Penwith this October and warmly invite you to join us.
Taking place at Pendeen Parish Hall on Monday 3rd October at 11am, this special talk will focus on the invaluable living heritage which is looked after by our friends at the Penwith Landscape Partnership. The talk will be led by Laura Ratcliffe-Warren, Ancient Penwith Officer at Penwith Landscape Partnership.
Graduating from Cardiff in Archaeological Conservation in 2001, Laura has since worked in Museums and in the field on both archaeological and cultural material, from individual objects to wider sites and collections. She currently works as a freelance Conservator and an Ancient Penwith Officer for the Penwith Landscape Partnership in West Cornwall, working in a living heritage landscape to conserve, enhance and promote aspects of it through community engagement.
The talk is open to the general public and free of charge. Refreshments, including pasties, will be served. Cornwall Heritage Trust members are welcome to attend and were also previously given exclusive access to book their places.
If you would like to book a place, we recommend doing so without delay as we expect they will go incredibly quickly. Numbers are restricted and places are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
Cornwall Heritage Trust hosts a number of Story Cafes throughout the year to bring Cornwall’s unique and distinct heritage to life and preserve its stories for future generations. Previous Story Cafés have ranged from discussing archaeological excavations at Trethevy Quoit to exploring the forgotten stories of Cornish miners from the Kolar Gold Fields.
