A Public field trip with local landscape archaeologist Peter Herring.
This event is part of ‘And Everything And Nothing Has Changed’ (2021). A 5 month Public Arts & Heritage Programme by Cornish Queer Artist & Producer Robin Sullivan.
Come and join this public field trip with local Landscape Archaeologist Peter Herring. Throughout the day we will walk through the China Clay landscape whilst hearing captivating insights into the local area’s evolving history, spanning not just the last 300 years of China Clay mining, but 6,000 years of evolving landscapes, communities and culture.
The main themes of this field trip will surround changing land use throughout millenia. How communities and culture shape the land and the land shapes community and culture; the concept of a taskscape.
This Field trip alongside subsequent interviews with leading specialists will be produced into a captioned documentary as a lasting legacy. This part of the project programme has been kindly funded by Cornwall Heritage Trust.
The field trip is a moderate walk, with hills, uneven footing and some sections on road. For further information on the exact route or any questions relating to accessibility please email Robin directly on [email protected]
(P.S We will be stopping for lunch so a packed lunch is highly recommended! )
