Historic Environment Skills

The Historic Environment Skills (HES) programme engaged people across Lincolnshire and the East Midlands in the skills needed to conserve, protect and help the public engage with their heritage including: archaeology, traditional building skills, project management for building preservation trusts and engagement. This project started in Spring 2018 and completed in November 2021.

Part of this project was to create an online resource which will be available for people to engage with the historic environment and skills, and to open up traditional buildings to a new audience. This resource has been created for you to find out more about the different types of historic buildings, and the different elements that make these buildings up.

Case studies have been provided to show how the HES trainees throughout their traineeships have developed in their new heritage and traditional skills, thanks to the project.
