Public History

At Context we believe that we all make history and that places are made by people.

To us, places are not just architecture. Our team of professional historians unearth the records to bring new perspectives to places. Sound historical research underpins our work and we apply academic and field-based research methods to comprehensively understand places and issues. If you want to get beneath the surface and know the past to create today, we can help you understand the power of place, enriching strategic planning processes, design, place-making, urban renewal, and interpretation. We believe in communicating our findings in an accessible, practical and engaging way.
