The African Heritage Challenges conference is the 16th Annual Heritage Seminar at the University of Cambridge.

The conference explores the ways in which heritage can promote, secure or undermine sustainable development in Africa, and in turn, how this development affects conceptions of heritage in Africa. As the countries of Africa attempt to forge burgeoning economies and societies in the twenty-first century, cultural heritage has a role to play as the nexus where the past and the future meet.

African Heritage Challenges is generously funded by CRASSH, the Alborada Fund, the British Institute in Eastern Africa and the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research.
