HISTORIC DOCUMENTARY DESKTOP STUDY
Readily accessible primary and secondary documentary sources are researched to trace the history of the site as well as the building in an attempt to put specific dates to the relevant parts of the building and show the development of the site.
This form of study can also provide background information on the past occupants as well as the development and uses of the site.
Some of our clients use this information for sales or promotional material whilst for others it may be just for personal use. Whether it is tracing the background of a house or exploring how a landscape has developed, archival research by our researchers can provide detailed evidence as to how this has come about.
