Historic Cornwall

Discovering Cornwall and Scilly's archaeology and history

Welcome to Historic Cornwall, the website that has information about projects undertaken by Cornwall’s Historic Environment Service.

The Cornwall & Scilly Historic Environment Record contains details of over 56,000 archaeological and historical sites, monuments, buildings, artefacts, landscapes and industrial settlements.

It can now be searched online via the Heritage Gateway.

The HER can also be accessed through Cornwall Council’s mapping site.

I am a happy member of this community. There is a lot to learn about our history than I thought as a kid. The community is also friendly and supportive at all times.
