Heritage forum settles on two leaders

The National Heritage Science Foundation, the body tasked with delivering a UK strategy for heritage science, has appointed two co-chairwomen, after failing to decide on one over the summer.

At the first meeting of NHSF members, held on 11 November, it was announced that Nancy Bell, head of collection care for the National Archives, would share the post with May Cassar, professor of sustainable heritage at University College London. Cassar was influential in the formation of the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee parliamentary inquiry into science and heritage that led to the NHSF’s creation.

The co-chairs have been appointed on an interim basis. The post was originally advertised in August 2014 but out-going chairwoman Sarah Staniforth admitted: “August turned out not to be a good time to begin looking.”
