LOCAL HISTORY PAPERS

Back Home

An additional forum in which local historians can publish the fruits of their research.  It is not intended as a rival to either Staffordshire History or Staffordshire Studies and we would always encourage local historians to submit their work to those august journals first.  This electronic version, however, does offer facilities unavailable to the print medium (eg live links to photographic and/or supporting text).

Please email your papers directly to Julian Bielewicz
