The Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia

The Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) is currently undertaking a review of the IS rating scheme and as part of that review, ISCA is updating the Heritage Category. By aspiring to go beyond ‘business as usual’ in how we manage and advocate Heritage within infrastructure, great outcomes can be achieved for industry, government and community. We would like to invite you to have your say on the draft criteria that will inform how Heritage is assessed against national best practice. A survey has been prepared to gain your understanding and experience with heritage and infrastructure, as well as providing feedback of how we can improve our proposed criteria.

You will also have the opportunity to sign up to be a part of our Australian and New Zealand stakeholder interviews to further explore how heritage and sustainability principles can be incorporated into the rating system. Please click the link to go to the survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ISCAHeritage , otherwise if you would like further information on this project please contact Flavia Kiperman via email at Flavia.Kiperman@tpgwa.com.au.

Please note that the survey closes on 18 August.



University of Sydney

The University of Sydney presents a lecture by Nathalie Cohen, Head of Community Archaeology at the Museum of London Archaeology: Knole Unlocked- The secret history of a country mansion. This lecture will take place on 17 August 2017, and the evening will include champagne and pies.

Knole is one of England's largest country houses and is owned by the National Trust. Over the last five years, a major program of conservation has been underway, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. This has involved repairs to the roofs and exterior, and extensive work within the showrooms, removing panelling and lifting floorboards to allow for repairs and new services. Archaeological investigation and recording of these previously unseen areas has greatly enhanced our understanding of this great house and this presentation will describe discoveries made during the course of this project.

Nathalie Cohen has worked on a number of different archaeological projects over the past 20 years, including: the Monuments at Risk Survey in the East Midlands, the Grimes London Archive Project and the Thames Archaeological Survey, and overseas at sites in Israel, the Czech Republic and Romania. She has also worked at the Museum of London Archaeology Service (now MOLA); as the Archivist for the unit, as a field archaeologist on excavations, and as a foreshore and built heritage specialist, on sites across Greater London, Kent, Buckinghamshire, Somerset, Devon and Surrey. She is currently an Honorary Research Associate at UCL, and also the Cathedral Archaeologist for Canterbury Cathedral.
