HS2 People Place Time

Helen Wass

Before we build the bridges, tunnels, tracks and stations for HS2 an unprecedented amount of archaeological work will take place – the largest ever programme of investigation in the UK.
The route for Phase One, some 230km, crosses the grain of the land through varying geologies, topographies and regions. Our research and delivery strategy seeks to deliver high value knowledge and maximise public benefit. My talk will outline the opportunities and challenges that HS2 offers in terms of knowledge creation, engagement and legacy. With site works now underway there will be recent discoveries to share.
