Historical Documentation and Archiving
As a team we all presently work, or have worked in the history sector so naturally have a love and passion for Dorset and its rich heritage. In our paranormal work we find that getting to know a location is a crucial part of understanding its story.
Our time at a location is not always about investigating paranormal claims, but may just be for archiving and documenting the past.
We hold and preserve information as well as a photographic archive relating to historic locations in Dorset that are not part of our general enquiries, but simply just to have a file of events. In some cases we have documented locations where alterations, refurbishments and even major historical change has taken place to make a record of such information that can be preserved for all time.
We also have a sound archive of recordings with custodians of these places.
Some documentation may be at historic locations with a paranormal heritage, which is how we may find ourselves involved or required to fulfil this branch of our work. Some are just to record a period in time for future generations to enquire about and to also make any future research possible.
