The PARNASSUS project, being carried out within the department of Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering at University College London, investigates the impact of extreme climate conditions, such as flood and freeze-thaw, on built heritage and archaeological sites. Key findings from the project will be presented, alongside work from keynote speakers from other European institutions working in the field.

There will be a dedicated session for anybody wishing to present their own work by poster on the day, and registration fees will be waived for authors.
