Buildings History is defined as the study of buildings and their structural and stylistic evolution. It uses techniques from archaeology, architectural history and science based disciplines to analyse and define the structural changes to historic buildings and how they were used over time.

This survey was carried out to establish the level of current activity in architectural history, buildings history and buildings archaeology. It also looks at the state of current training provision and the likely future market for practitioners of buildings history.

The national heritage agencies including Historic England commissioned Landward Research to carry out this survey.
