    Visit us for an Introduction to Archaeology Resources

    • 25th February 2013

    On Wed 6th March we will be providing a free introduction to archaeology resources available in The Hive. Whilst these were previously available in our office at the University,  they are now far easier to access but home in The Hive.  We have seen a big rise in visitors and many of them are pleasantly surprised to find how useful the archaeological resources are.  This session will explain the resources and how the Historic Environment Record staff can help.

    This one hour session will focus on finding out more about the types of resources available and how this can assist people with their research and studies and will include information on:

    ·         The Historic Environment Record – a massive database of all known archaeological sites in the county, including historic buildings

    ·         Digital historic maps, which can be printed out

    ·         Aerial photos of the county

    ·         Digital resources you search for yourself on-line

    ·         Reports on archaeological excavations, building recordings and other projects

    This will be a great introduction to anyone who is interested in local history, but not sure what archaeological sources are available to help.

    Deborah Overton, Historic Environment Officer, said “This is a great introduction to anyone interested in local history, but not sure what archaeological sources are available to help. We realise, from those who have visited already, that many are unaware of some of the very useful information available.”

    Places are free but need to be booked.
