Over the past few months we have continued to work on developing the North West Regional Research Framework update project for the Historic Environment. The project itself has been extended to include an interactive testing and training phase which will run into 2021 and there are three strands we would like to brief you on.
Firstly, the Wiki website which will be the primary interactive source of online information for the new research framework. This will be available for Beta Testing soon, hopefully in April 2020. Until then this website will be updated to include the latest versions of the Research Questions.
Secondly, we are completing a point-in-time monograph that will summarise the Historic Environment research undertaken in the North West of England between 2006 and 2019. The intention was to launch this at the Spring meeting of CBA North West. Although that meeting almost certainly can not now take place due to the COVD-19 crisis the publication will still progress, and we will post details later in the Spring. The original research framework monographs, published in 2006 and 2007, are be available to download from this website.
Thirdly, we have arranged a series of training seminars on how to use the new Wiki website. Unfortunately, again due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are not able to deliver these in person. Instead we are compiling an online training package for download and use. This will be ready in April in 2020.
Don’t forget that the original North West Regional Research Framework volumes from 2006 and 2007 are still current. They can be downloaded from here:
