Heritage research

Our research

Research in the area of heritage is undertaken by a number of scholars across the School’s subject-areas. Some projects involve the University’s Special Collections, such as the Text/Image Relations in French Late Medieval Culture project (below), the Brotherton Ovid digital learning resource, and ongoing work on the Tony Harrison Archive.  Others involve partnerships with local museums, or work with material culture, such as the Samian Pottery project (below) and archaeological work as far fied as Pompeii.

The University has its own small collection of ancient Cypriot pots and other artifacts, now displayed within the School on Level 1 of the Michael Sadler building’s main staircase.  The collection has been catalogued by LCS postgraduate researcher Anna Reeve, who worked with two undergraduate students to produce the new display, with support from the Footsteps Fund.
