Uncovering relics from the past or charting the heritage of a local community can be a painstaking and frustrating process for the amateur historian or archaeologist, often hampered by limited time and funding. Writing our History, Digging our Past is a project that aims to assist voluntary groups in the East Midlands and beyond delve into their local history by providing access to the expertise and resources of professional arts and humanities researchers.
