Jersey's Historic Environment Record (HER) is an extensive source of information about the historic Island of Jersey, much of it online for the first time. It showcases Jersey's rich diversity of archaeological sites, finds and features, historic buildings and landscapes, as well as battlefield sites and local folklore.
Jersey's Historic Environment Record is powered by Arches®, an open source heritage data management platform developed by the Getty Conservation Institute and the World Monuments Fund.
You can search the online HER directly in different ways: Map Search, Text Search or via one of the saved searches provided.
A detailed user guide is available to download: HER User Guide (PDF, 4.1 Mb)
The HER is also accessible in person. It is based at the Jersey Archive, the Island's national repository of archival material and a key location for all reports on archaeological work and historic building recording carried out on the Island. This resource is available to a wide range of individuals, researchers, students and archaeologists. Jersey Heritage collections also hold 150,000 items of archaeology, 27,000 social history objects and 11,000 works of art.
We are also interested to hear from anyone who wants to know more about Jersey's heritage, or knows about historical or archaeological features that we could add to the Island's story.
