What is the Heritage Future Database?

Connecting heritage sites to the people and evidence that give them meaning.

A key feature of the online presence of the Heritage Futures Research Centre is the relational database which has been developed and used in collaboration with, and funded by, a number of organisations, projects and researchers. This innovative research database provides a means to collate, connect and share research. In particular, it enables the linking of heritage sites and places to the people, objects, images, oral histories, documents and other evidence that help to tell their histories. It also enables the sharing of ongoing research between and among project partners and with the wider research community and beyond.
