BLHA Spring Event – Local History in a Pandemic – Saturday 27th March 2pm (Zoom Talk)

BLHA Spring Event – Local History in a Pandemic – Saturday 27th March 2 pm (Zoom Talk)

With ongoing restriction related to the current pandemic, the BLHA is very pleased to be able to present the Spring 2021 Event on Saturday 27th March.  Geoff Saunders (Archaeological Officer, Planning Services, Bedford Borough) and Matt Tuohy (Historic Environment Record Officer, Bedford Borough) will be the speakers and present a talk entitled ‘Local History in a Pandemic’.

The talk will cover the complications we have faced during the pandemic, how they have been overcome (or not!), with a focus on the recent work of the Bedford Borough Historic Environment Team over the past year. This work includes the recent large scale evaluations along the proposed route of the new A428 bypass in the east of the Borough along with numerous small and large scale investigations associated with various development proposals.

The talk will also cover the results of archaeological works reported on which we have reviewed over the past year.

Our HER Officer Matt Tuohy will provide updates on the Historic Environment Record and some of the more interesting recent enhancements he has made to it.

The event will take place via Zoom on Saturday 27th March at 2 pm.  The talk will last for approximately 1 hour and there will be a questions and answers session to follow.  If you would like to join us for what will be a fascinating talk, then please contact the BLHA Secretary to book your place and receive full details on how to join us.

Please provide your name and the name of the society to which you belong to: secretary@bedfordshire-lha.org.uk
