Event details

The diverse coastal geography of the southern part of Britain has given rise to a wide range of historical and archaeological heritage forms.

These range from Pleistocene river terraces through to modern architecture and its visibility. Examples of the former include the ancient river terraces of the Solent, affecting town planning in Southampton itself, whereas the latter is dynamically exemplified by the Spinnaker tower in Portsmouth. What is the impact of the local landscape on the historical development of the south coast and its industry? Building on local maritime heritage, this study day explores the interactions between history, archaeology, geography and business in the formation of the south coast landscape.
