This research focuses on the tangible aspects of heritage through material culture. Interdisciplinary research techniques are used for the analysis and interpretation of these convergent areas. The outputs from this cluster will primarily be archaeological, architectonic, build environment and ethnographical surveys; databases; monographs and comparative research data tools.
