This is an unusual local event, a long-established, multi-disciplinary day with speakers on a diversity of aspects of a particular topic.
This year the theme is 'How Green is My Valley' lookiing at uses of the environment and landscape over several centuries and into the future. Speakers include an archeologist and historians (looking at the past) but the interest extends into the future with talks about policy and legacy. So, an eclectic mix and an audience who like, I think, to feel that they are 'keeping up with what is going on' in research.
It is quite a challenge to fulfill the brief. I will be talking about moss clearance - not the 'greenest' of topics of course. And much of the work has been published. But I am pretty confident of having some new and surprising slants to keep the audience awake and interested.
