Stonehenge Alliance statement on UNESCO judgement on Stonehenge tunnel

On 6 July, in Krakow, UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee agreed that the benefits a 2.9km tunnel would bring to the centre of the Stonehenge World Heritage Site (WHS) cannot be offset against the damage it would cause to other parts of the WHS, and would have an impact on the Outstanding Universal Value of Stonehenge. Rescue backs the Stonehenge Alliance’s calls for a considered approach at Stonehenge, for a scheme that reflects the unique character of the WHS.

Rescue AGM – 29th April 2017

The Rescue AGM was held at the University of Salford on 29th April 2017. Our host, Mike Nevell, followed our usual AGM proceedings with a very engaging talk
“Archaeology North West: Problems and Opportunities in Saving the Past for the Future.”

 We present below a series of Tweets, photo and video from the event for those members and non-members who couldn’t join us, and for those who were they to relive it. Enjoy!

Thanks particularly to Mike Nevell @archaeology_UoS for the use of his slides and for allowing us to video him – below, but also to Tweeters who were in the audience that day – @hanamorel and @SusHeritage.
