Sophia Project Research
This page lists both the current and the completed research projects conducted by staff of the Sophia Centre at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David.
In the month of August 2014 the Sophia Centre provided funding to enable a pilot study on Welsh Monastic Skyscapes to be carried out. The Welsh monasteries, their location, orientation, and stonework, represent human activity that sought to build a place for God on earth, or as Megan Cassidy-Welch stated, to build 'the earthly manifestation of heavenly space.
The Sophia-Tairona project is a collaboration between the Sophia Centre, Anthropology @UWTSD and the Tairona Heritage Trust. The Centre is assisting the Tairona Heritage Trust in order to promote and support the academic side of the Tairona Heritage Trust's work, including the archiving of resources and public engagement.
