Historical Research


Joanne Thornton
Historical Researcher, Writer

My main research interests are historic buildings and their history, and archaeology. I am also interested in the archaeology of ritual and magic. In addition, I have undertaken several house histories on Island houses.

I have a postgraduate diploma in archaeology and heritage and am qualified to undertake archaeological surveys to Level 3. I also have a BA (Hons) History.




 I have written 4 books: Criminal women in early 17th century Hertfordshire, Whitwell; history of a village, Whitwell; a history in pictures and Folklore and Legend of the Isle of Wight. Whitwell; history of a village and Folklore and Legend of the Isle of Wight are available on Amazon.co.uk.
