What is an HER?

CPAT's Regional Historic Environment Record (HER) is a database and archive of information about sites of archaeological and historical interest within the Clwyd-Powys area. We have records of archaeological sites from all periods, ranging from the earliest known human habitation in Wales, through to relatively modern features such as World War Two military structures. We hold information about Listed Buildings, Scheduled Ancient Monuments, individual find spots, and other archaeological features. We also hold information about archaeological projects undertaken in the area.

For each site, find or project key information is recorded, such as its name, location, site type, period and legal status. A brief description of the remains is also entered, and we maintain a list of bibliographic sources and finds relating to each site. Alongside computerised information we hold substantial quantities of paper archives, maps, photographs and other supporting information.
