What do our members do?

Historians do specialised work, drawing on material from wide ranging sources such as government archives, libraries, newspapers and company records, or from collections of oral histories and image collections. They have expertise in collating and interpreting information, and presenting this in an engaging and informative format tailored for the intended audience. Presentation takes many forms, including: books, exhibitions, oral histories, heritage assessments, content for television programmes, and online histories.

Our members work with a wide range of organisations and other professionals, such as government agencies, archivists, archaeologists, anthropologists, architects, planners, lawyers and companies.
