House History workshop

hh Published Tuesday, 26th September 2017

House History is increasingly popular, as people look to find out the history of their house or another building of interest.

The Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service, based at The Hive, holds lots of documentary evidence to help tell the story, including maps, directory, photos and census.

In this workshop, attendees will learn about the main sources, using a couple of local buildings as case studies, and go through how to search the catalogues and indexes.

Paul Hudson, Learning & Outreach Manager, Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service, said: "People often come in to ask about their house's past, and this is a great way to understand the many sources which can help you to discover the history of the building and the people who lived there."

The workshop will take place on Saturday 7 October, from 10am-1pm on the Explore the Past floor, Level 2, The Hive.

Places are limited and need to be booked at a cost of £15 each.

They can be booked online through http://www.thehiveworcester.org/explore-the-past-events.html.
