Archive Hacks: Online training
September to November 2021
Would you like to read an original Paston letter? Would you like to understand 16th to early 18th century archives? What are the quick ways to find information in title deeds or wills or fictitious law suits?
UEA and the Norfolk Record Office bring you two free six week online courses to equip you with skills to understand and 'hack' old archives. One course is on palaeography (handwriting) and the other on types of record. As well as video demonstrations, there is live tutoring from Tom, NRO archivist.
