Public engagement

The Speaking with the Dead Project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, culiminated in a series of public exhibitions and lectures at participating cathedrals, beginning in August 2014. Further public engagement activities are under development with Exeter Cathedral, supported by the ERC Past in its Place Project. These activities are co-ordinated by myself and Dr Naomi Howell

The Poly-Olbion Project also features a public engagement side, co-ordinated with our partners Flash of Splendour Arts.
