During this stay-at-home period we kept busy in the background and also developed a new, regular event to encourage members to mix and share.

We mentioned last time that we were working on refreshing the IE website. We are pleased to announce that it is now live. Please take time to have a look around our new online home. There is an interactive map on which you can search for trainers in your area. We will be adding more content and a special area for members soon.

The web address remains the same as before:

Let us know at if you find something is not quite right or if you cannot see what you are looking for.

We also trialled a new online event, Thematic tables, run by Janja Sivec, around which several members gathered once each month for an hour-or-so of lively exchange. The topics were mostly organised and hosted by our subject coordinators, plus special guest presenters, and provided a great opportunity for more of you to get to know each other whilst investigating and debating some interesting heritage interpretation questions.

The events were held on Zoom and livestreamed to the IE Facebook group where some members chose to watch the live debate. The events were also recorded so that members could watch later for up to a week after the event. You can find reviews of a couple of the recent table discussions in this newsletter.

We will take a break during the summer and hope to resume this monthly event later in the year so keep an eye open for news about the next one/s if you’d like to get involved.
