THE University of Winchester is set to host its annual Research and Engagement week.

From April 26 to May 2 there will be exhibitions, lectures and events on campus and across the city to highlight the breadth of work being carried out by academic staff and research students.

The event will open with the conference Winchester: Archaeology and Memory from April 26-27, which delves into the city’s rich cultural heritage.

Professor Tony King, director of the Research and Knowledge Exchange, said: “Research Week celebrates the vibrant research culture at the University of Winchester. It also enables us to show how our research is benefitting the community and the cultural life of Winchester and beyond.”
