Event Details

The Postgraduate Archival Skills Training (PAST) programme offers students a unique opportunity to obtain the skills and knowledge needed to undertake academic research at The National Archives.

This Level 2 Skills and Methodology Workshop will provide students with the essential skills to identify and access original source material in their field of study. During each session students will receive tuition and guidance on a range of archival research skills from our medieval records specialists and undertake practical exercises involving hands-on document work.

This event is aimed at current taught postgraduate (MA, MSc etc.) and first year PhD students, although students at later stages of their PhD are welcome to attend.

The workshop is held over two days on site at The National Archives. Tea and coffee at registration and lunch on both days is provided.
