Explore Maps workshops

Published Tuesday, 23rd February 2016

Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service are to deliver workshops for people interested in learning more about Cartography and maps.

It is said that all good adventures begin with a map, and they are a fantastic resource to help you discover more about local and house history and archaeology.

There are a vast range of maps held by Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service, and workshop attendees will be helped to discover this great range. Using many examples from the collections, participants will explore the different types, how they can be used, and how to access them here in The Hive.

The workshops will be held on Saturday 5 March from 10am-3pm on the Explore the Past floor, Level 2, The Hive.

Paul Hudson, Learning & Outreach Manager, Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service, said: "Maps are fascinating, and are very visual so always attract attention. In this workshop we'll help people discover more about the many types of maps which we have and how to search our collections so people can get the most out of them."

Places are limited and need to be booked at a cost of £15 each. To book or for more information, ring 01905 766352 or email www.thehiveworcester.org/events or visit the Explore the Past desk on level 2 in The Hive.
