The website features an innovative interactive timeline that you can scroll across to find stories and articles relating to various episodes of Somerset’s history.
The timeline is constantly expanding to bring you more content and more history. News and contact sections bring you up to date with what is happening at the heritage centre as well as providing you with an easy, effective and quick avenue of communication.
However the jewel in the crown is the ever-growing collections area of the website dedicated to show casing the artefacts themselves. In this section our objects are arranged into various collections and then the best are selected to be published as our highlights allowing anyone anywhere to have an insight into the artefacts that we care for.
The website is a great opportunity to explore some of the hidden gems of Somerset and look back at a fantastic history, however don’t just take our word for it, visit and judge for yourselves at www.southsomersetheritage.org.uk
Councillor Sylvia Seal, Portfolio Holder for Leisure & Culture said, “We are very pleased to announce the launch of our fantastic new heritage website. The website now gives more people the chance to look at the history of Somerset and there are some great areas for people to visit and view.”
