Recording Old Worcester Sun 25 Mar 2012

Worcester is a fascinating medieval city with origins going back to prehistory. We will be concentrating on some of the many historic buildings in the city centre, what to look for when trying to understand their story and how we can record that information. We will have a go at using social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter and AudioBoo to record what we see – this is a new experiment for WYAC! We will also be using old photos and maps of the city to work out how things have changed.

Investigating St Swithun’s Sun 26 Feb 2012

St Swithun’s is a church in the centre of Worcester. Now rarely used, it is an unusual example of an unaltered Georgian church interior. During the afternoon we will look at what the building can tell us, investigating the symbolism and doing some brass rubbing. We will also investigate the historical sources at Worcestershire History Centre, to find out how the documents can help us find out more about the people who would have used St Swithun’s
