The Coventry Historic Environment Record (HER) is a publicly accessible database that contains information about all known archaeological sites, historic buildings, historic landscapes and findspots in Coventry, dating from the earliest prehistoric times to the 21st century.
The HER also holds information about Coventry's scheduled monuments (nationally important sites and structures that are protected by law), listed and locally listed buildings, and conservation areas.
Many different sources of information are used to update the HER, including : historic maps, documents, aerial photographs, archaeological fieldwork reports, published books and published research. These sources are an important part of the HER and are available for viewing by the public.
The information in the HER is being used to create computerised maps of how the landscape of Coventry looked at various times in the past.
