Our Media search is one of the most popular features on this web site. It is so popular because we have such a superb selection of media available for you to view. We have sophisticated virtual models, and a vast collection of photographs which will give you a real feel for the range and scale of monuments and sites that we have here in Essex.

See below for the options that are available for you on this screen;

Choose a media type to search for

If you want to see all the different types of media that are available on the web site, then leave the default option of "Any". However, if you are only interested in a specific subset of the media, then choose the one that you would like from the options available.

What?

If you know what you are looking for, then type the name of it into the box provided. The web site will then search through its powerful full text index to find what you are looking for. If however you are not entirely sure what it is that you are looking for, or would just like to browse certain monument types then click on the "Browse Monument Types" button to select a particular monument type that you may be interested in.

When?

If you know the range of dates of monuments that you are interested in, then use the input boxes marked "from" and "to". However if you would prefer, you can choose a particular period from the options provided in the drop down list.

Where?

The location of all the monuments is stored in the database, which makes it very easy to find all the monuments in a particular area. If you know the area that you are interested in, then type the name of it into the box provided, then click on the "Find Area" button. This will match up the name of the area that you have typed in, to the names of areas that are stored in the database. If there is a match, you will then be presented with the list of areas that matched what you typed in. If however, you would like to browse the list of areas that are stored in the system, then you can do this by clicking on the "Browse Areas" button. Now you can view the internal hierarchy of areas.
