Information Index

Start here…

Research is something that everyone can do, and everyone ought to do. It is simply collecting information and thinking systematically about it.
Raewyn Connell

This is the master index of all our island information pages

Information Index

Saint Helena Island Info currently has information pages, so to help you explore and find what you are looking for we have organised them with various subject groupings. If your interest is our natural environment, start with the Nature Pages index and navigate easily through all of these. Similarly if you want to know about activities, or people, or history, or places… Each subject group has a symbol - a small coloured icon with the first two letters of the subject name - and these appear on every page within the subject group, as follows:

activity

Our history pages

Of course, a page can appear in more than one index. Our Napoleon page, for example, is in ‘people’ and ‘history’.

This page is the index of the indexes!
