The University of Plymouth's research centre in cultural heritage – how we live with, use and understand the past through things, spaces, traditions and memory.
Our researchers exchange ideas and form new partnerships across the fields of heritage studies, art history, history, architecture, business, tourism, geography, 3D and graphic design, and digital technologies.
We work in co-productions with our partner organisations – museums, galleries, historic sites and landscapes – to develop new projects, test ideas and prototypes and produce new research.
We host a range of activities that include network events, visiting speakers, research showcases and an annual postgraduate symposium hosted by the National Trust at Saltram House.
Cornerstone Heritage is also home to Plymouth Heritage Praxis our heritage research-practice unit.
