Factsheets

There are nine different fact sheets in the Revealing Cheshire’s Past Series which were created in 2004 by the Cheshire County Council. They are a great introduction to the story of Cheshire’s past with information on over 50,000 years of history. Each one shows the distribution of archaeological sites of different periods and tells you the ones you can visit. You can download A4 format pdf versions of the factsheets below.
