Unlocking Buckinghamshire's Past
Welcome to Unlocking Buckinghamshire’s Past, which includes the Historic Environment Record for the county of Buckinghamshire. The database contains over 17,000 records not only of traditional archaeological sites like excavations, earthworks and stray artefacts but also historic buildings and landscapes and covers periods from the earliest humans to the twentieth century. You can text search or search using the digital map. You can look at what is in the database about your parish or read a period overview of archaeology in the whole county. There are free teaching resources for use at Key Stages 2 and 3. There are also guides on how to start researching the past and getting involved in archaeology, and much more!
This database has been made possible by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, support from Buckinghamshire County Council, the Chilterns AONB Conservation Board, the Buckinghamshire Archaeological Society and the Council for British Archaeology (South Midlands).
The Historic Environment Record is compiled, maintained and continually developed by the County Archaeological Service of Buckinghamshire County Council. This online version of the Historic Environment Record is not authorised for commercial re-use of the information.
