RJ Smith Environmental Historian is an environmental consultancy that puts the time factor into environmental research and management. It offers services where present environmental needs overlap with the historical past. It specialises in water history, brownfield policy and the historic environment, including the built environment and landscape evolution, but can address other areas of environmental history. Research and analysis on environmental and historical issues can be undertaken for a variety of outputs, from site specific reports to academic papers and books. Historical context can be given to policy documents. Interpreting and communicating is also important. This practice is about helping people to understand and appreciate the world around them and takes a wide view of what constitutes history. The results of research can be expressed via writing academic and popular articles, creating videos or lecturing.
