The Heritage Environment Group
The Heritage Environment Group (HEG) is a body which advises the Welsh Assembly on the historic environment of Wales, and in November 2013 it met at Bangor University. Several members of the School of History, Welsh History and Archaeology are participants on the HEG, led by Professor Ray Karl.
At the Bangor meeting John Griffiths, the Minister for Culture and Sport in the Welsh Assembly, was present to discuss a new Heritage Bill which is in its consultation stages. He also discussed the Welsh Government’s Historic Environment Strategy.
