Historic Environment Scotland is the lead public body for the historic environment in Scotland – what does that mean in practice? What does HES do and how does that reflect how a 21st century population views heritage. HES has been undertaking ground-breaking research both in Scotland and internationally and opening up the conversation about heritage to different audiences. There has been controversy in the press around contested heritage through the Black Lives Matter campaigns; how does this fit with HES role and what does it mean for how we tell Scotland’s story in future? Who gets a say in what gets recognised in Scotland? HES has also been at the forefront of climate research and its impact on the historic environment, what will this mean for sites and monuments around Scotland in the future and how might that affect all of us?
