Celebrating Hampshire's Historians

Historian of the Month

As a part of our Celebrating Hampshire’s Historians project, we feature a Historian of the Month. They are chosen to illustrate the breadth of topics and approaches that we have discovered in building the profiles. The aim is to be as representative as possible and the list includes professional and amateur historians and archaeologists, antiquarians and others, with a cut-off date of 2000. The first profile was posted in April 2022. For any queries, please contact: celebrating@hantsfieldclub.org.uk.
