Heritage Week 2022 is an opportunity for academics and the wider public to discover the latest in heritage research from the University of Portsmouth.

This year, the week is built around the key themes of Valuing Heritage, Conservation Science, Community Heritage, Oral Histories, and Heritage Digital, drawn from the expertise available at Portsmouth.

Each day we will be exploring a different theme and looking at how our research and expertise can be of benefit to the community of Portsmouth and beyond.

All sessions will be delivered both in person and virtually, via Zoom. You can view the full programme of events on our Eventbrite Collection Page.

Don’t forget to book for our closing event; a roundtable discussion on the Future of Heritage in Portsmouth, involving academics and representatives from the Portsmouth community!


The University of Portsmouth Heritage Hub supports the development of interdisciplinary links across the University, to encourage and develop heritage-based activities.

The Heritage Hub will provide greater visibility, focus, and structure to the University’s role in forging heritage networks, projects, and interdisciplinary capacity within the University and throughout the community.

The Heritage Hub will establish a supportive infrastructure to nurture its members and cascade opportunities to them. It will also act as a forum to enable pubic engagement in Portsmouth.
