This consultancy can undertake research and analysis for environmental history. It can place a range of historical investigations into an environmental context, or place current environmental issues into a historical setting. Context reports on the recent or more remote historical past can be used in a range of situations from multi-authored academic reports to consultation responses and educational programmes. Its specialist areas are the history of water supply and pollution, the evolution of contaminated land and brownfield policy, and landscape history, but other topics such as wind power and air pollution have also been addressed. Understanding the historic environment requires a historian for research and analysis in understanding landscapes and placing old buildings in their past environmental context. Landscapes can be interpreted for a variety of audiences. Recent developments in an environmental field can also benefit from a historian's analytical approach. Details of publications are on the Past Work page.
