Aberdeen City Heritage Trust is pleased to present its inaugural series of Heritage
Lectures in association with the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and the
Repair and redevelopment of traditionally constructed buildings can present
challenging issues. Understanding their architectural significance, complexity and
technology is essential for developing well-considered projects.
Aberdeen Heritage Lectures provide an excellent opportunity to consolidate and
develop a greater understanding of traditionally constructed buildings and repair
techniques for those who have the on-going challenge of funding, commissioning,
assessing, designing and managing historic buildings and places. They will be of
interest to building professionals, professional agents, property owners, planners
and anyone with an interest in historic buildings.

Join us for an evening of talks on the survey and preservation of historic plaster ceilings.
We will start with a presentation by Richard Ireland on the stylistic development of plaster ceilings together with an overview of their investigation, defects and repair. This will be followed by Kevin Clark from the heritage team at Conisbee Consulting Engineers who will talk about some of their recent work accessing, inspecting and appraising the structure that supports such ceilings, often in highly challenging conditions.
Richard Ireland is the UK’s leading conservator of historic plaster and paint. He operates principally as an independent consultant and practitioner but also advises for public bodies. Richard’s projects typically involve a combination of archaeological investigation, scientific analysis, and contextual historic research. Conisbee is an award winning civil and structural engineering design practice with offices in London, Norwich and Cambridge with a specialism in heritage engineering and CARE registered engineers. Together, these two talks will provide us with an understanding of the methodologies applied to care for these important architectural features.
The talks will be followed by a Q&A and the opportunity to network around a glass of wine afterwards.

This course is aimed at researchers using radiocarbon and other techniques, including Quaternary geologists, palaeobiologists, archaeologists and marine geoscientists. The first two days of the course will cover key aspects of radiocarbon dating including sample selection, laboratory processes and Bayesian analyses of radiocarbon dates. The third day of the course will expand on this to look at the construction of Bayesian chronologies more generally, including those that rely primarily on other dating techniques. In this third day there will be a focus on using chronologies for environmental records.
Course Director: Professor Christopher Ramsey, Author of OxCal, with members of the NERC Radiocarbon Facility based at both Oxford and East Kilbride.
