How to Research the History of Your House

3rd January 2020, 11:13am | By David | Event Date : 20200229

You don’t need to live in an old house to research its history. Whether you’re in a sixteenth century thatched cottage or a 1980s semi, there’s a wealth of information waiting to be uncovered. Who lived there and what did they do for a living, what did the house previously look like, how has it changed inside, and what was on the land before your house was built? This introductory hands-on workshop will give you all the skills you need to get started researching the building you live in and the people who called it home before you.

£6, booking advisable on 01249 705500 or archives@wiltshire.gov.uk
