This is intended to list various types of history which would fall in the remit of this wiki.

1) What is generally called 'local history' - the history of a locality. Richard Gough's History of Myddle, written in 1700, is perhaps the best known early orginator of this form of history.

2) History of industries in a given area, and other aspects of social, economic and cultural life particular to that area.

3) Transport and communications.

4) Local government.
