The Historic Environment Record (HER) is a register of all known archaeological and historical sites in the unitary authority of West Berkshire. The database, with linked digital mapping, includes an index of fieldwork and excavations, bibliographic references and found archaeological objects. It also contains information on designated assets (Scheduled Monuments, Listed Buildings, Registered Parks and Gardens, and Registered Battlefields) and Locally Listed Heritage assets. The HER holds details of characterisation projects in West Berkshire (Historic Landscape Characterisation, the Newbury Historic Character Study and Historic Environment Character Zoning) and has access to a small collection of reports, journals and books.
