IHBC’s newest Context now out: Remembering the Second World War

The latest issue of the IHBC’s membership journal Context is now out, themed around ‘Remembering the Second World War’, using UK-wide case studies to explore core IHBC CPD themes including valuing heritage as an emblem and memorial; managing heritage resources, and generating change to create sustainable futures for the remnants of and signposts to this critical period in global history.

There are insights into (once) long-forgotten infrastructure; explorations of different building types associated with this time period, and examinations of impacts in the landscape.

As with each issue of Context, this number also carries the usual regular features such as book reviews, reports from the IHBC’s new Chair and old Director, and much more.

Articles include:

  • Peter De Figueiredo – Royal Ordnance Factories
  • Jon Gedling – The Commonwealth War Graves Commission
  • David Kenyon And Fiona Jenkins – ‘Is That Screw-Hole Really Necessary?’
  • Peter Larkham – Bombing And Rebuilding
  • Frazer Robson – An Art Deco Cinema On Wartime Orkney
  • Antony Firth – Second World War Heritage At Sea
  • Chris Mayes – Structures In The Landscape: Buildings, Monuments, Walls And Metalwork
  • Nick Corbett – The Dukes Of Normandy And The Second World War

logoReading Context helps IHBC members develop their skills across all of the IHBC Competences and Areas of Competence, and so is a critical baseline in addressing priorities in Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
