Shropshire Historic Environment Record (HER) have contributed an article to the "Day of Archaeology" website, an international blog which "aims to provide a window into the daily lives of archaeologists from all over the world". It welcomes contributions from across the heritage sector on Friday 28th July 2017.

This year, Shropshire HER wrote about the diversity of projects we have been involved in, particularly throughout July. Highlights featured two flights out of Welshpool to record archaeology from the air, work recording military sites of the 20th century as well as some work at Castle sites.


You can read more on the Day of Archaeology website - - as well as seeing our previous posts.

Shropshire HER works to ensure that the diversity of heritage in the county is properly recorded, and forms a key resource for anyone interested in finding out further about sites, finds and buildings – from the Palaeolithic period to the 20th century.
