“Heritage is everybody’s” – Have your say in an online survey

“Our Lincolnshire” is a project by the University of Lincoln that wants to find out more about the county’s heritage.

The researchers encourage everybody living in or visiting the region to take part in an online survey.

It asks for the things people regard as heritage and how they engage with it.

Carenza Lewis, who is leading the project, said: “I understand by heritage everything that we inherit from the past. It can cover anything from archaeological sites, monuments like castles to traditions and stories.”

“I’m a medievalist, I like mostly the castle, the churches and deserted villages. But heritage is personal. Everybody is different. People might be more interested in the events that are held every year in their local pub. And that is just as much heritage.”

The project’s aim is to discover hidden heritage and to develop new approaches to bring people in contact with it.

Involving the public is in the focus of each step of the project.

In a few weeks’ time, the scientists will launch a web app called “My Lincolnshire Collection” in which people can choose their ten favourite historical objects to create their own collection.

The last step is the development of theatre performances based on the survey results.

“Heritage is really important for people’s life”, said Carenza Lewis. “It is about where we came from, where we are now and where we are going.”

Siren News reporter Julia Biermann spoke to Carenza Lewis about the importance of history and the project. Listen here to the full interview and follow the link to take part in the survey.
