Join us this Saturday, 18 April, for a day of special events at Housesteads Roman Fort. There will be special talks, tours and activities, including a talk by Peter Stone.

Peter worked for UNESCO as part of the team that produce the World Heritage Education Project and kit, ‘World Heritage in Young Hands’, in the 1990s. He was also the Chair of the Hadrian’s Wall management plan committee. Peter’s talk will focus on the meaning of a World Heritage Site in the wider sense.
