We’ve capitalised on our breadth of expertise to maximise our societal impact. Our work is helping cultural heritage to thrive, and to promote sustainable heritage economies. Our work also promotes community engagement and wellbeing, as well as contributing to food security, human health in an environmental context and the sustainability agenda. 

We have expanded enormously as a community since the last REF exercise, and are continuing to grow ambitiously. We are an inclusive department and try to ensure all our colleagues have the opportunity to develop their research, teaching and professional practice.
