Chester Archaeological Society celebrates its 170th anniversary this year. The conference will look back at some of the major projects undertaken by the Society over its long history, as well as looking forward. The built landscape of the city was changing in the middle of the 19th century as the population increased dramatically, and of course Chester’s heritage is still a contentious issue today as sites are developed.
