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.

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
