Using historic sources


Sun 24 Feb 2013
Before archaeologists do any digging they need to carry out Desk Based Assessment - a study of all the historic information and records available in archives, local studies libraries and the Historic Environment Record.


Using Historic Sources

The Hive, Worcester 2-4pm

1 per member

Before archaeologists do any digging they need to carry out Desk Based Assessment. This is a study all relevant information available in archives, local studies libraries and the Historic Environment Record. This helps them know where to dig, what to expect, or even whether they need to dig at all. For instance the archaeologists who found the body of Richard III knew where to dig because of clues they found in the historical records.

Come along and find out what is held by Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service in The Hive which can help. After going through the different types we will then have a go at seeing what we can find out about Croome Court, which we will be visiting later in the year.

The sources we'll be looking at will be very useful for the Alan Jacobs Award as they will be the sorts of sources needed to help tell the story of your local place.

Booking closes at 4pm Friday

Location:
Parking available at the Cattlemarket car park (pay & display). Please meet at the main entrance to The Hive
