Welcome to the website of the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre, your passport to the past.
Wiltshire and Swindon has a rich and diverse heritage. The History Centre brings together the archaeology, archive, buildings record, conservation, and museum advisory services together with the county local studies library to create a centre whose sum is much more than that of its parts.
