Guidelines for blog contributions

The National Heritage Science Forum runs the blog Heritage Science: Fact not Fiction as a way of bringing heritage science to a wider audience.

The Forum runs several campaigns over the course of a year to coincide with wider events happening in the world of heritage and culture. Calls for contributions to these campaigns usually go out via our newsletter. We do also welcome speculative contributions outside of scheduled blog campaigns.

If you would like to take part, please send contributions and questions to:
