Explore Historic Grantham (HER) KS1,2,3
This resource has been designed to guide teachers and children in Key Stages 1, 2 and 3 in learning more about the prehistory and history of Grantham through to the late Medieval period.
Much of the information and the activities in the resource can be used not just for Grantham, but for other places as well.
The Historic Environment Record (HER) is a computerised database and geographical information system which records the historic environment of Lincolnshire from the earliest prehistory to the Cold War. It includes all known archaeology, including below ground as well as standing remains, Scheduled Monuments, historic buildings such as Listed Buildings, historic landscapes for example parks or battlefields, all designated historic sites and buildings and Conservation Areas.
The HER is continually growing and is currently at nearly 30,000! Along with the records, the HER Team also hold aerial photographs, books, reports and journals.
The HER Team can undertake searches of the database for members of the public and professionals, or the records are available to view and search online at Heritage Gateway.
