Disability History Month

English Heritage have launched a new website call Disability in Time and Place.

It “reveals how disabled peoples’ lives are integral to the heritage all around us.  From leper chapels built in the 1100s to protests about accessibility in the 1980s, the built environment is inextricably linked to the stories of disabled people, hidden and well-known.”

Nicola and Victoria will be presenting a Paper at the Theoretical Archaeology Group Conference on Tuesday 18th December on the Digability project as part of the session on Disability and Archaeology:Critical Perspectives and Inclusive Practices.
