History of the project

Professor Caroline Barron, trustee and former Chair of the HTT, has written an article on the history of the project, with an emphasis on its Oxford connections, for the History Faculty of Oxford University. The article appeared in the June 2016 edition of The Oxford Historian, and we are grateful to the History Faculty for permission to reproduce the article on our website.

The article is available to view or download as a PDF below.

Prof. Barron has also written a short article entitled 'Town Maps for Historians'  for Local History News, the newsletter of the British Association for Local History.  It appears in issue number 123, Spring 2017, and can be found here.
