Every local council across the UK has an Historic Environment Record (HER).
HERs hold information and photographs on known archaeological sites, finds, landscapes, historic buildings and the historic environment. They are updated regularly with new information provided by professional archaeologists, historians, researchers, metal detectorists, and even YAC clubs!
HERs are a brilliant source of information for anyone interested in the archaeology and history of their local area.
To find out more about your local HER, contact your local council, or visit www.heritagegateway.org.uk and click on ‘Historic Environment Records’ on the menu on the left-hand side of the page.
