Four sets of complete multicolour light curves of the short-period solar-type eclipsing binary V1005 Her are presented. It is found that the depth of the primary minima in the light curves went deeper from 2013 to 2018, and then became shallower again in 2019, while those of the secondary minima were unchanged. The total-eclipse characteristics in the light curves enable us to determine reliable photometric solutions of this system. Our results from the detailed light-curve analysis show that V1005 Her is a W-type shallow-contact binary with spot activities. We have monitored this system for 7 yr and 22 new times of light minimum have been determined. Together with those collected from the literature, we investigate its Observed-Calculated O-C curve and detect a cyclic variation. Because of the insufficient energy, this cyclic change cannot be explained by magnetic activity cycles of the components even if it has high spots activities. The detected cyclic variation is more plausible as the results of the light-time effect due to the existence of a third body orbiting around the central binary. The minimal mass of the additional stellar companion is determined around 0.45 M⊙ in both circular orbit and eccentric orbit cases when a total mass of 1.2 M⊙ for the binary is adopted. This mass is larger than that of the less massive component of the central binary. It implies that the secondary body was not replaced by the third body during early stellar interactions, suggesting that it is a fossil system and keeps original dynamical information.
