If These Walls Could Talk: Great Wall of China and Hadrian’s Wall Collaboration Announced
Between 18 and 21 March, Chinese and British heritage experts will gather in Newcastle and visit parts of Hadrian's Wall as part of an information sharing event.
Those attending the Wall to Wall event (focusing on Hadrian's Wall and the Great Wall of China) will share their expertise on topics such as protecting and conserving a World Heritage Site and attracting visitors.
Both monuments are national treasures and famous world-wide, and were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1987.
This new period of collaboration in cultural heritage will bring about great opportunities in the fields of tourism, heritage management and conservation of the historic built environment.
