Norfolk is brimming with history going back hundreds of years, with extraordinary finds still being made preceding the Anglo-Saxon era.

In its 149-year history, the Eastern Daily Press has written extensively about the county’s most famous landmarks, events, and people, from the Queen of Iceni Boudica to Queen Elizabeth II.

But what parts of our county’s history interest you the most? We are asking our readers what they would like to learn more about as part of an innovative new history project.

The Local Recall Project, launched by EDP publisher Archant and backed by Google, will see news stories from decades past become available online through the latest chatbot and voice search technology, with help from local AI specialists ubisend.

Hundreds of volunteers have already signed up to help digitise hundreds of thousands of pages of content dating back to 1870.
