Centre for Kent History and Heritage (CKHH)
Seen as a gateway between mainland Europe and England, Kent has been at the forefront of many changes and developments in the nation’s history for centuries.
From the iconic White Cliffs at Dover, to the majestic ruins of Rochester Castle, the county’s history and heritage offers fascinating insights into the past – locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. Reflecting this rich diversity, the CKHH showcases the research not only of historians, literary scholars and archaeologists in the School of Humanities at CCCU, but through its events the work of many experts across such areas.
The Centre organises conferences, lectures, festivals, study days, workshops, exhibitions and other events, many of which focus on aspects of Kent history and archaeology, for the benefit of all – members of the public, students and staff. It has and continues to build up partnerships with regional and local organisations, such as Kent Archaeology Society, Canterbury Cathedral Archives and Library, and Canterbury Archaeological Trust, to offer joint events and other benefits. It is also heavily involved in publications, including Maritime Kent through the Ages (Boydell, forthcoming) that involves both of the current Co-Directors and the Visiting Research Fellow, while its Research Fellow is the Co-General Editor of Medieval Animals, a series published by the University of Wales Press.
