South East Research Framework

 

The archaeology, buildings and historic landscape of South East England (East Sussex, Kent, Surrey and West Sussex) comprise an outstanding inheritance that helps to give the region its distinctive character and sense of identity.

This historic environment is also a rich resource for education, research and leisure, but what do we actually know about the region's past, and what are the questions we want and need to answer?

The South East Research Framework for the historic environment is an opportunity for all those who care about the region's heritage to take stock and plan how limited resources should be used.

Surrey Local History Committee Homepage

The Surrey Local History Committee of Surrey Archaeological Society exists to foster an interest in the History of Surrey, both directly and in co-operation with other bodies. It aims to discover the past and to maintain the heritage of Surrey, in history, in architecture and in landscape. It fulfils these objects by encouraging local history societies and individuals within the County, by the organisation of meetings and by publication.

Medieval Studies Forum

The Medieval Studies Forum is a group of people interested in the medieval period. The Forum mixes traditional presentations with informal seminars where ideas can be presented and discussed for the benefit of all those involved in the different aspects of a common interest. From this, it is hoped that cross-disciplinary studies will develop to begin to answer some of the questions that are being posed as we think about "where next" and, in particular, to foster closer ties between field work and documentary research.
