The CLANDAGE project (Building Climate Resilience through Communities, Landscapes and Cultural Heritage project) has been funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, through the UK Climate Resilience program, to investigate how landscapes, communities and people have historically and continue to experience, cope and adapt to climate change. The research will combine new and existing work on historical records, archives and oral histories.

There are 3 strands to this project, one in Staffordshire in partnership with the Staffordshire Record Office, another centred around the River Eden in Cumbria alongside researchers from Historic England and the third working with the Museum & Tasglann nan Eilean Siar in the Outer Hebrides. In all of the case study regions, we will be exploring how communities have adapted to climate change to become more resilient, however the approach and focus will be tailored to the different environments.
