Local history research projects online

There is a wealth of information on local history in the East Riding. Here we present topics that have been researched but not presented as exhibitions in the museums themselves. We hope in the long term to build this section into a valuable resource for people interested in local history.

Topics to date are:

Convict Connections - how prisoners from Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire were transported to Australia.

East Riding Yeomanry - looking at the men who joined the East Riding Yeomanry in the period from its creation in 1903 until the Armistice at the end of the First World War in 1918.
