Impact

The impact of our research benefits the larger community in many ways, in the UK, and in other countries where our research is conducted. As well as many examples of broader engagement through public engagement or broadcasts, specialist research informs work in museums and professional archaeology. The Department lends support to schools and the wider public through its contribution to the Classical Association of the South West.

Current projects which are specially focused on conferring benefit on the broader community include:

Migration, identity and place

An AHRC-funded, ‘follow-on’ project on migration, identity and place led by Elena Isayev, working with asylum seekers and schoolchildren in Swansea. The aim is to use art and community activities to enable each of the groups involved to develop and revise their ideas about migration, identity and place and about the other group.
