In his inaugural professorial lecture, Professor of Archaeology David Griffith will reflect on his two decades of teaching landscape archaeology at Oxford, including founding and directing a MSc course in Applied Landscape Archaeology.

He has led and completed a series of major research projects during this time, on the coastal site of Meols (NW England), in Orkney, and an award-winning community project in East Oxford. Acknowledging with gratitude the contributions to these made by colleagues and students, he will use this experience to refresh his views on the essence of studying landscapes, issues in public heritage, and their meaning and value in the fractious present.

With a look to the future he will make a plea for the continued value of researching and conserving historic landscapes in the face of human, political and environmental threats.
