The HER (Historic Environment Record) contains all available information on known scheduled and unscheduled archaeological remains within Peterborough Unitary Authority. Peterborough HER digitally maintains three types of record, namely monuments of all periods (from finds’ spots to earthworks), events (investigative fieldwork such as excavations or surveys) and sources/archives.
The HER database is a valuable source of information for anyone interested in researching local archaeology and history. The ways in which it is maintained and accessed has been evolving in recent years.
Rebecca Casa-Hatton will explain how the HER is used by the planning department of the council – and how it can help both professional and amateur archaeologists.
Speaker: Dr Rebecca Casa-Hatton, City of Peterborough Archaeologist
