Last month, Ben and Abbi from the UK WetFutures team, contributed to a Heritage of Peatlands Webinar, hosted by Europarc Atlantic Isles and the Moors for the Future Partnership.

The presenters discussed the nature of peatland archaeology and some of the heritage features of peatlands in the Peak District National Park, the intangible heritage of peatlands, the challenges faced by peatlands and their heritage from wildfires, and the ways that archaeology and conservation professionals can work together to ensure the cultural and natural heritage of peatlands are valued and protected. Over 100 people joined the webinar and asked great questions that led to a fascinating discussion.
We'd love to read your views - what is your favourite peatland archaeological site or feature? What does peatland heritage mean to you?
