Heritage, Landscape and Creativity
Historical geographers, Prof David Harvey (of University of Exeter) and Prof Keith Lilley (of Queen’s University Belfast), convened a post-conference field trip on the theme of “Heritage, Landscape and Creativity”. The trip covered areas of outstanding landscapes, including parts of the Cotswolds and the Welsh Borders, and a range of heritage sites, from medieval towns and cities, such as Hereford and Ludlow, to places associated with the Industrial Revolution, such as Ironbridge and the Severn Valley. As well as travelling through attractive and historically rich landscapes, participants were invited to explore wider geographical themes including ancient and modern landscapes; industrial heritage; regional/national identities; cartographic histories, and creativity and place. Travel was by coach from London, with stays at local hotels in historic towns en route.
