What are documents?

Documents are brief articles on, for example, aspects of Hampshire historical events, people and buildings. They are distinguished from the Hampshire Bibliography in that they can be downloaded and read immediately.

What is the Hampshire Bibliography?

The Hampshire Bibliography is a listing of books, articles from periodicals, local government publications, etc. which give information on Hampshire. Not all of the titles in the bibliography were seen by the compiler but were noted from other sources or bibliographies. Many of the titles can be located by using the online catalogues of the contributing authorities; Hampshire Library and Information Service; Southampton Libraries; and Portsmouth Libraries.

What are themes?

Themes are short narratives illustrating aspects of Hampshire's heritage using images and descriptions of people, places and events. They can be a starting point for discovering more from the website.
