Stories of Spaces and Places

Project overview

Stories of Spaces and Places is a citizen science project in collaboration with the Council for British Archaeology and University of Surrey examining the role of special places and their role in wellbeing.

Do you have a space or place that is special to you? Is there a particular story or experience that you associate with it? How does it make you feel? Stories of Spaces and Places is an opportunity to share pictures, memories and feelings about your favourite places with us.
