From Treasure Hunters to Citizen Scientists workshop seminar series aims to examine the various citizen science and heritage management challenges presented by metal-detecting, specifically through engagement and consultation with diverse audiences and stake-holder groups specifically in the Nordic countries. The first of three events in the series will be organised by the University of Helsinki, Finland (2nd-3rd June 2022, 10:00-15:30 EET). This workshop, consisting of a series of public talks and discussion, focuses on the heritage management authorities, considering their recognition of the need to enhance engagement with metal-detectorists and other interested members of the public. Future workshops will take place a the University Museum of Bergen, Norway (6-7th October 2022) and Århus University, Denmark (27-28th April 2023). The workshops are made possibile by a grant from NOS-HS / Nordisk samarbeitsnemnd for humanistisk og samfunnsviteskapelig forskning.
