Colonial Connections

GW4 and National Trust partnership priority area: Colonial Connections.

Having formed the basis of the previous Bridging the Gap initiative, this is the most developed of the five themes.  On Wednesday, 29th January 2020, fifty researchers, curators and subject experts from across the South West and Wales attended the first of two development workshops in Bristol to explore a range of research and creative opportunities including new interpretative approaches to difficult histories, changing the stories associated with National Trust places, plant-hunting and naval homes, and the archaeology of the colonial countryside. 

The second and final development workshop for this theme will take place in late March/early April 2020.  If you are interested in participating in this theme please contact the GW4 academic lead, Professor Nicola Thomas, or the National Trust Research Co-ordinator, Rosamund Davis.
