Recent Research

Historic England supports and funds a wide variety of research into the historic environment. In this area you can find a selection of short summaries of recent research projects that have been supported by Historic England.

The subjects of these summaries vary greatly from detailed analysis of a single monument or a landscape survey undertaken to the National Mapping Programme standard, to national thematic surveys such as Railway Signal Boxes.

These pages are complementary to the more detailed information that can be found through the Research Reports' database and through our Research Publications.

To help you find summaries of interest they have been grouped under one heading for National and Thematic projects, and then separate headings for each of the regions.
