HER Search

There are two online databases you can use to search for information on archaeological and historic sites in Herefordshire.

Herefordshire Historic Environment Record Database

The Historic Environment Record (HER) is a record of all known archaeological and historic sites in Herefordshire. This online version of the HER's monuments database gives a summary description of each site and a list of the sources of information used to compile it. Where archaeological work has been carried out, this is also recorded.

Field-Names and Landowners Database

This database allows you to search for information on historic field-names and landowners for the county. Most of the field-names in the database come from the tithe maps, which date to the years around 1840. The names were collected by the Herefordshire Field-Name Survey from the original maps and surveys held in Herefordshire Record Office. The general editor of the Survey was Ruth E. Richardson.
