Festival of Archaeology: HS2’s Innovation in Archaeology

Webinar (online) event

Event date

Taking place as part of the Festival of Archaeology, this webinar will cover innovations that HS2 uses in its archaeological investigations

High Speed Two (HS2) is the new high speed railway for Britain.

Before we build bridges, tunnels, tracks and stations, the largest archaeology programme ever undertaken in the UK is taking place along the line of route.

Our archaeology programme is continuing to unearth discoveries across our sites. To share information about these works and some of the exciting finds uncovered we are running a series of online archaeology events to support the Festival of Archaeology 2021.

Our archaeology programme presents the opportunity to deliver ground breaking approaches and solutions that will leave a legacy beyond the lifespan of HS2.

Archaeology a new frontier for Innovation

Have you ever wondered what Innovation and Archaeology have in common?

During this ‘webinar’ we will share information about our innovation programme and how it is supporting some of the exciting finds uncovered through innovative approaches and techniques developed on the HS2 Project.

Hosted by one of HS2’s Historic Environment Managers and Innovation Leads, this webinar will focus on sharing some ground breaking Innovation solutions being utilised across the Project.

This ‘webinar’ will discuss how the HS2 Innovation programme has created a rich environment for the development and implementation of Innovation across the Project and how this has enabled the Archaeology team to set new benchmarks for the industry.

You will be able to ask the team questions via a live Q&A chat option.

Please be warned that the presentation will contain images of Human Remains (Skeletons).
