Wessex Archaeology is celebrating the fifth birthday of its Northern office, based in Sheffield, by holding a seminar this January. This event will kick-start 2015, a year that will see the Northern office working hard to expand our education and outreach projects across the region. We are eager to spread the word about Wessex Archaeology’s heritage learning and public engagement projects and build partnerships for future community endeavours. 
This invitation-only seminar for professional archaeologists has received a very positive response and is now fully booked. The day will include presentations by our leading specialists on geophysical surveys and remote sensing – including the use of ‘drones’, human skeletal remains, radiocarbon dating and the benefits of community heritage projects. Archaeologists from local authorities and museums, English Heritage and the National Trust will be in attendance, so we are hoping for some lively and informative discussions.
