How you can help the Historic Environment Record

We need your help to keep the Historic Environment Record (HER) up to date. If you have any information relating to the archaeology, landscape or historic buildings in your area, we would like to hear from you.

Any finds you make when gardening or out walking could improve our knowledge and understanding of Surrey's past, but only if that find is reported. Your local museum or the Surrey Finds Liaison Officer should be able to help you identify the artefact. Finds can be reported to the HER using a Surrey HER Finds Report Form that can be downloaded below or by post, should you prefer. Soon it will also be possible to report finds to the HER through the on-line Exploring Surrey's Past (ESP) resource.

Let us know what you have found and where, and that information can be added to the HER, for the benefit of all who are interested in studying and preserving our past.

If you have some spare time or are interested in a particular aspect of archaeology, you can volunteer to research and add information to the HER. The ESP Officer can offer information on current projects if you need some ideas and will welcome ideas for new projects.
