Unloved Heritage? is the name given to a programme of community archaeology activities designed to engage, enthuse and inspire young people throughout Wales to get involved with their local heritage.

Unloved Heritage? comprises seven regional projects, delivered by partner heritage organisations across Wales.

Each of the seven projects is developed out of consultation, and is responsive to the archaeology and social circumstances of the region.

Using activities ranging from traditional archaeological excavation to virtual reality, from recording music to recording buildings and from cycling to canoeing, we have worked with young people to create a activities which reflect the young people’s interests and desires.

All activities are designed to enable young people to explore the heritage world around them and to tell the stories of their explorations. These stories will provide a powerful legacy; a body of increased archaeological and heritage knowledge to interpret local heritage sites.
