The ARCHAEOLOGY INDEX is a means of searching the journal (Herefordshire Archaeological News - HAN) of the Archaeology Research Section (ARS) of the Woolhope Club. The ARS produced a journal from 1966 onwards at varying intervals, the issues being numbered sequentially. This contained reports of ARS meetings and papers. In later years these had considerable archaeological and historical material, much gathered during field meetings. Early issues were not indexed.


In 2003 Lottery funding was obtained to scan and/or rekey all HAN issues to date, as many of the early journals were on decaying paper. A new index was compiled and this underlies the index search. The index can be searched using the ARCHAEOLOGY INDEX option in the panel on the left.
