The new History & Heritage Handbook 2015/16 edited by Andrew Chapman and published by Heritage Hunter came out recently.
Flicking through a copy we were very impressed by just how comprehensive a guide it was to almost 3500 places and organisations in the UK , the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man all listed across more than 500 pages.
Each of the entries provides the contact details and a brief description, many of which give specific information about specialist collections.
Use it to
- research your family history: includes details of county record offices and family history societies
- find thousands of heritage sites to visit on holiday or for day trips
- learn about special archives in museums and libraries across the UK, ideal for researching local, social or military history
