Event description

Description

THIS EVENT HAS RECENTLY BEEN REARRANGED FOR 23 AUGUST: PLACES AVAILABLE!

The Layers of London project is creating a ground-breaking interactive online map through an extensive programme of public engagement and crowd-sourcing, resulting in a dynamic website allowing users to explore and engage with London’s history. No comparable website exists. Imagine being able to peel back the layers of London’s history, all the way to the Roman period, and explore interactively – wherever you are – the story of London’s remarkable, diverse and sometimes turbulent history over 2,000 years and its evolution into the city it is today. Led by the Centre for Metropolitan History, Layers of London is a partnership with the British Library, Museum of London Archaeology, Historic England, London Metropolitan Archives and The National Archives, and a wide range of local partners. It will also be a co-production with the public, using a range of ways - social media, online tools, workshops and training events - to involve people of all kinds across London’s diverse boroughs and beyond. The end product will create a lasting legacy for London’s heritage, through a sustainable website allowing content to be added for at least 20 years. The legacy for this project is enormous, including the possibility of replicating the map nationally.

Delegates are asked to bring a memory, story or history they would like to add to the map in the workshop and a laptop/tablet if possible (we do have 10/11 as back-up so we should be okay).

We will provide tea/coffee and light refreshments for the session
