Researching Community Heritage brings together academics and community partners interested in researching local heritage. The team consists of a network of researchers with expertise in a wide range of subjects from landscape archaeology to storytelling and cultural history. The projects are on subjects as diverse as World War II training camps, colonialism in the Peak District and the history of a Georgian town house, now used as a homeless shelter for young people.
