Sites and Monuments

The Sites and Monuments Record (SMR) is a computer index of all known archaeological sites in Lincolnshire. It contains roughly 15,000 records, which are cross-referenced to an archaeological archive. The SMR is also sometimes known as The Historic Environment Record (HER).

Lincolnshire County Council keep records of things such as:

  • archaeological excavations
  • surveys
  • aerial and terrestrial
  • photographs and details of individual finds.

If you are researching the development of early Saxon settlements in England, your local parish history or just want to know what is in Lincolnshire visit the SMR.

You can look at their records by appointment during office hours. Information may also be requested by letter, phone or fax.
