Responding to our nation's heritage: a debate

Date: 19/09/2013

On Monday 16 September, a special public debate asked what the future holds for our past.

The debate – The Future Care of Our Nation’s Heritage [1] – was part of a two-day conference to mark the 100th anniversary of the landmark 1913 Ancient Monuments Act and will bring together leading figures from public life, the heritage sector and academia.

Over 100 users from across the world watched the live stream and many users of Twitter joined  in the discussion. The Storify below reflects how social media users engaged with the issues raised about the future of heritage using the hashtag #debateheritage. Film from the debate will shortly appear on this website.
