A late Roman belt fitting from Bishopstone There's more to us than you might think...

We cover ALL aspects of our county's history. So historic buildings and ancient churches, documentary research and the landscapes of the past, local history – as well as archaeology and fieldwork – all are within our remit.

And we're just as concerned about the present as the past: whether it's HS2 or local planning decisions, we work to protect the county's heritage and historic environment.
