The extensive Herefordshire's Past section contains general information pages on all historical periods and a wide variety of topics of use in the curriculum, including medieval castles, transport and industry, workhouses, Non-conformist chapels, and prisons. There are also essays by specialist guest authors on specific topics. To access these pages, click on the link above or the link in the menu on the left-hand side of this page.
The HER Search function allows you to search the Historic Environment Record's databases. These include the monuments database (which currently contains around 20,000 records), the sources database (giving details of the origin of the information held in the monuments database) and the historic field names database. All of these can be searched in a variety of ways, allowing for general or very specific searches.
To learn more about Herefordshire through the ages, go to the Herefordshire's Past pages. Arranged primarily by time periods, these pages provide more detailed information on a wide range of topics, including castles, the Romans, the Middle Ages, the Civil War in Herefordshire, buildings, transport and industry, and prehistoric Herefordshire. Some of this information has been designed for use by schools.
Other sections of the site provide further information on Herefordshire Archaeology, its staff members and their work. The News, Events and Projects pages include the latest archaeological news from the county, details of forthcoming events, and background information on our projects. The Resources pages allow access to downloadable project reports and our Historic Environment Today newsletter, suggestions for sites to visit, information for archaeological contractors and researchers working in Herefordshire, an Education section, and information of interest to metal detectorists and people thinking of getting involved in metal detecting.
