I was delighted to be invited to the opening of the Hengistbury Head Visitor Centre this weekend. Myself and Julie Gill our Placements in the Faculty of Science and Technology watched as guest of honor Chris Packham cut the red ribbon and the public were let in to enjoy the new facilities. Many staff and students both old and new were present, as Bournemouth University has been closely associated with Hengistbury for many years. Our students in Archaeology, Anthropology; Ecology, Geography and Forensic Science have spent many a happy hour working alongside researchers either out in the field or on the archaeology collections managed at the site.
We are really pleased to be one of the Project Partners on the successful HLF bid behind the new Centre, and are looking forward to creating more placements and projects in the coming months. One of our MSc Osteoarchaeology students Gabrielle Delbarre has been responsible for working on the new archaeology displays, and you can find more about these and the rest of the facilities by visiting the facebook page below:
