Under this cut, you'll find a list of the sites applying for World Heritage Status. I have to admit, I wouldn't know who I'd vote for. I've so many sites on this list of which I am very fond. The Jewelry Quarter in Brum, Chester Rows, Cresswell Crags, The Lake District, Offa's Dyke and St Andrews.
This is something I'm going to have to think about. But I am incredibly proud of the heritage sites which such a small island have. Even the weird ones. From megalithic monuments, unexplained stone figures, and deserted factories, we have an incredible diversity of history here.
These do, in fact, make me proud to be British.
The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.
