Hidden on the estate of Herstmonceux Castle, in the south of England, are important clues about the enduring and troubled relationship between man and nature. Our project aims to understand changes to human settlement on the Herstmonceux estate, transformed during a time of intense climate change, to determine the impact of nature on settlement patterns and land use. St. Jerome's University is one of the research partners participating in this research, working both on site at Herstmonceux and in the DRAGEN Lab, located on the St. Jerome's University campus.

 

Our Partnerships

 

Our project on historical climate change at a late medieval castle is the result of an innovative and rapidly expanding research partnership between the Bader International Study Centre, located at Herstmonceux Castle, Queen’s University (Kingston, Ontario, Canada), the University of Waterloo (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada), and St. Jerome’s University (Waterloo). In addition, we have benefitted from the generous support of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), in the form of a Partnership Development Grant.

 

The purpose of our formal partnership is to share resources, personnel, skills, and opportunities for the mutual benefit of our partners and, more importantly, for the betterment of Canadian society.  Each of the partner institutions has made a significant investment to help us achieve success.
