#TORCHGoesDigital and @OxRBL joins! April 23, 2020April 23, 2020 / by Author OxRBL As part of this week’s #TORCHGoesDigital! theme of Storytelling, the TORCH Heritage Programme is taking the opportunity to celebrate with us our ongoing ‘Histories, Mysteries and Future of Oxford Broad Street’s Heads’ project. Find out about how we revealed the lost history of one of the most noticeable Oxford monuments. Learn about the wide range of research topics we are tackling such as built heritage preservation and perception, and exploring extended ‘built heritage services’ with focus on bio-receptivity, diversity and well-being. The project was made possible with funding from the Oxford University Diversity Fund and van Houten Fund, KE SEED Fund and the Heritage Seed Fund. We are actively collaborating with the History of Science Museum and one of our ongoing projects investigates ‘Oxford’s stone built-heritage as a proxy for historical air quality’.
