Title: Peterborough Historic Environment Record (HER)
Description: The Peterborough Historic Environment Record (HER), formerly known as Sites and Monuments Record (SMR), 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 database is digitally geo-referenced and mapped in Hawkeye, Peterborough City Council's interactive map website. Further HER resources include physical archives, historic maps, annotated maps, aerial photographs and grey literature, which can be consulted by appointment.
