SRF Autumn Conference - Religion in Society and the Landscape

Saturday, 10 October, 2009 - 10:30 to 17:30

The Conference

The Autumn conference, supported by SCC Heritage Conservation Team, continues the Research Framework process. This began with the 2001 Conference Archaeology in Surrey in the 21st century and the subsequent publication of Aspects of Archaeology and History in Surrey in 2004. The Surrey Research Framework itself was launched in 2006, and since then groups of the Society and others have used it as a basis for the development of further research. It has always been intended that the Framework should not be ‘set in stone’ but should continue to evolve and this conference will examine ways in which that is happening and invite further involvement in the process. 


The overall theme of this conference will be Religion in Society and The Landscape with presentations on aspects of the earlier periods before focusing this year on the Mediaeval and the Research Framework aims for that period

Tickets : £8.00 in advance or £10 on the day

Refreshments  :  Morning coffee and afternoon tea will be available in the hall.  Please make your own arrangements for lunch.
