An exciting new website for anyone interested in Suffolk’s history. The website is the brainchild of the late Vic Gray and developed by the Suffolk Institute of Archaeology and History in collaboration with the Suffolk Records Society and Suffolk Archives. Here you can find information about the main organisations involved in promoting and researching Suffolk’s history, who provide opportunities to hear talks, join field trips, and meet like-minded people. It also shows you how to discover what research and archives exist in your area of interest, and offers guidance on how to make your own research available to other people.
For over sixty years, the Society has been committed to producing books that bring Suffolk’s rich historical literature to a wider audience. Covering a period of 700 years these volumes of letters, diaries, maps, accounts and other archives have made a major contribution to historical studies of the county and are a useful tool for both professional and amateur historians, as well as being a source of information for anyone interested in Suffolk’s history.
Every year, the Suffolk Records Society produces at least one new book throwing light on some fresh aspect of the county’s history. There are two series of volumes, the General Series, for which we publish a regular annual volume, and the Charters Series, for which we publish occasional volumes of Suffolk charters and cartularies.
The Society’s members share a passion for Suffolk and its history and it is their support and subscriptions that have made possible this remarkable opening up of the historical landscape.
