Keep up to date with history and archaeology in Dorset by following or joining the Dorset History Network
The Dorset History Network (DHN) is for everyone with an
interest in any aspect of the history of the ancient and modern county of
Dorset: local history, landscape history, family history, archaeology and the
built environment are just a few of the interests of our members. It seeks to
encourage the use of a wide range of source materials including museum
artefacts, archives and local studies collections for all historical periods
and subject areas.
The Dorset History
Network brings together the numerous groups and individuals interested in the
history of the county ‘to build a history community in Dorset’ by sharing
knowledge, promoting research and improving communication between members. We
believe that an interest in history should be fun and that enjoyment is
enhanced by working with others who have similar interests.
Its website provides information about DHN which we hope you
will find interesting, including how to contact the DHN Committee and details
of DHN events. There is information on Network Members from across Dorset
including details of Network Members Events being held around the county. More
news of the Network's activities and those of its members can be found in the
Network’s newsletters as well as links to a range of fascinating websites.
