A talk by Stephen Fisher, Hampshire and Wight Trust for Maritime Archaeology. PATHH is a two year, HLF funded research project that makes use of historic maps to identify ‘lost’ rights of way around Hampshire. Across the countryside, numerous public routes have fallen out of use and failed to be recorded on the county’s definitive map. This project seeks to identify such routes that, were they to be re-instated, would be of benefit to modern countryside access. In this talk, project manager Stephen Fisher explains the origins of the project and the history of mapping in England.
A lecture in the Salisbury Museum Archaeology Lectures (SMAL) series. SMAL lectures are held on the second Tuesday of each month from September to April.
