Invite to launch of Heaton Map Project, 29 October 2014

YAS members are invited to the launch of the Heaton Map Project at Leeds Beckett University on Wednesday 29 October.

The Heaton Map Project is a collaboration between the Centre for Culture and Arts at Leeds Beckett University, the Yorkshire Archaeological & Historical Society and the Humanities Research Institute at the University of Sheffield. 

It takes an innovative approach to exploring and communicating the urban heritage of Leeds, using the journals of nineteenth-century physician Dr John Deakin Heaton to map his public activities across the city.  This map will be available as an app and website for mobile phones and PCs.

The launch will take place at Leeds Beckett University on 29 October.  Wine and other refreshments will be available from 5.00pm on the fifth floor of the Rose Bowl, outside RB 538 (Lecture Theatre D).  The event itself will begin in the lecture theatre at 5.30pm.

You can find a map of the campus online
