Exmoor's Past

Client: Exmoor National Park Authority

Exegesis worked with staff from the Exmoor National Park Historic Environment Record (ENPHER) to develop an attractive and highly searchable website. A vast range information on the archaeological and historic built environment of Exmoor is now readily accessible on-line. The site provides information on all known archaeological sites and historic buildings within the National Park; from the earliest recorded human history to recent times. Earthworks, ruins, buildings, landscapes, industrial remains, historic boundaries and routes, military sites and find sites are all included. The resulting website, Exmoor's Past, is the on-line home of the Exmoor HER.

The website enables access to information from a number of National Park Authority partnered projects, including Mires-on-the-Moors and the Exmoor Moorland Landscape Partnership Scheme.

The Exmoor's Past website has delivered much improved access to the information held within the ENPHER, and the inclusion of additional, interpretive material, linked to detailed records within the HER, provides a significantly enhanced user-experience, which in turn encourages wider audiences and greater participation.
