Creativity of Heritage: Debating the Castle and the Eye of York – Sat 20 Jul 2019
Heritage isn’t fixed, it isn’t just old buildings, it isn’t all about the past – it’s a way of debating what matters to us today and how we value it.
Neil Redfern, Principal Inspector for Historic England in Yorkshire, will explore the heritage of the Castle and Eye of York from all angles.
Neil will share specific histories and stories – whether of the founding of York, the authority of the crown and the Norman Castle, the nascent democracy and protest of Eye of York or the judicial power of Victorian Prison, the Last Drop and the founding of the Castle Museum. However – and in keeping with the tussle over meaning and power that have defined this part of York – we will immediately debate together what they mean to us (their significance) and what might these histories and stories mean for how we see the future of the area?
