Celebrating Hampshire's Historians

The Institute for Historical Research, based in London, is the UK's national centre for history, dedicated to supporting historians of all kinds. Organisations across the country ran events to celebrate its centenary (1921-2021), “Our Century: thinking back, looking forward.” The Hampshire Field Club and Archaeology Society was amongst those selected to contribute. The HFC contribution will continue as the profiles, available via the links below, will continue.

Nominated Individuals

In association with HFC members and local societies a list of nominated individuals has been compiled and contributors are writing profiles to be loaded onto the site. To date, beginning of March 2024, 156 profiles have been uploaded; more profiles will be uploaded in the coming months.

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. Covering the whole list is likely to take a long time. Nominations from local societies and volunteers to write the profiles are therefore very welcome. For this and any other queries, please contact: celebrating@hantsfieldclub.org.uk.

This month's is the twenty-sixth person chosen; you can find out more about the others by taking the link above.
