European Heritage Days at CEU

September 21, 2016

CEU opened its doors the forth time to visitors during the European Heritage Days September 17-18 2016. CEU students, alumni, the Cultural Heritage Studies Program, the Civic Engagement Office and the External Relations Office worked together to plan and conduct the activities celebrating the heritage that CEU safeguards and opens to the public in downtown Budapest. The European Heritage Days events provided by our Cultural Heritage Studies Program was a big success - about 450 visitors wanted to see the heritage values of CEU's buildings presented by our expert guides. We also had an interesting roundtable discussion on the role of civic metal detectorist in archaeological heritage protection and research, where Nóra Ujhelyi, our alumna also presented the results of her MA thesis on the topic.
