Hampshire History Blog
Hampshire History Blog is about the Hampshire History team out and about visiting Hampshire’s historic sites, enjoying arts cultural and heritage in the county and sharing discoveries along the way. We thought it might be interesting to share a few views and experiences as we evolve the Hampshire History project. Some of the things that catch our eye are cultural and to do with the present. We see many everyday things that are not ‘historically’ significant but are part of history nevertheless and need to be included. Some ordinary things are lost from the history record but we thought we might be able to capture them in a Hampshire History blog.
The project is designed to make our Hampshire history more accessible to everyone, whether you are just visiting our beautiful county of Hampshire or you’ve spent a lifetime in Hampshire as we have. The main articles on the site are about the specific historical places, people, period and events that transpired over a 1000 years of our Hampshire history. In the blog we will be looking at different aspects of the history of Hampshire as we experience it ourselves. It might just be a little quiet thought on the side or an interesting photo, book review or visit. Sometimes it’s just nice to capture the moment.
Starting in March 2015, we have a number of improvements and some new approaches we are rolling-out this year and there is no time like the present to start the ball rolling. The blog will be very visual, sometimes it might just be a single picture or a quote, or a news snippet. If you have events, content to share and would like to do a guest post, please just contact us.
