Heritage and the climate crisis: EARC academic writes for the Heritage Alliance

02 November 2022

Prof David Gill, who lead the EARC-funded report on the contribution of heritage assets to the Eastern Arc region, has written a short article for the Heritage Alliance in the run up to its debate on ‘Heritage in 20 years: what will matter most’.

Prof Gill identified ways in which heritage assets have been saved in the past, including the moving of Orford Ness lighthouse and the creation of sea defences to protect Reculver fort.
