East Anglia Resources

[Under development]

It just occurred to me that I have compiled a growing list of academic, antiquarian, and cultural sites relating to my dissertation’s geographic scene, East Anglia, and that I should really put them together with some commentary for anyone who might be interested.

So, here a few sites to get started. The list will grow (as will the annotations) over the next few weeks, I think.

Norfolk:

Norfolk Record Office, http://www.archives.norfolk.gov.uk/.  They’ve had a huge website face-lift since I was last on it. It’s a great facility, the staff are very kind and helpful, and, well, it’s just part of the wonderful Norwich experience, as far as I’m concerned.

Norfolk and Norwich Archaeological Society, http://www.nnas.info/narc.html

Norfolk Archaeology journal, http://catalog.hathitrust.org/api/volumes/oclc/1716237.html. Ancient and back-issues of the journal on the Hathi Trust Digital Library. Full-text up to 1921.

Norwich HEART (Heritage Economic and Regeneration Trust), http://www.heritagecity.org/index.htm.

Norfolk Archaeological Unit, http://nau.nps.co.uk/

Norfolk Archaeological Trust, http://www.norfarchtrust.org.uk/

Suffolk: 

Suffolk Record Office, http://www.suffolk.gov.uk/sro

Ufford Parish website, http://www.onesuffolk.co.uk/UffordPC

Suffolk Churches, http://www.suffolkchurches.co.uk/

Norfolk Churches, http://www.norfolkchurches.co.uk/mainpage.htm

And the umbrella site for both of the above, http://www.suffolkchurches.co.uk/.  They are maintained by Simon Knott, a man extraordinary diligence, as East Anglia is, I think, THE most church-heavy region in England.
