Check out these brilliant blogs by Trainees on the Historic Environment Skills Project.

From archaeology to stonemasonry, digital engagement to carpentry, the project brought important heritage skills to the forefront.

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.
