Event description

Description

This postgraduate records workshop offers attendees a unique opportunity to obtain the skills and knowledge needed to undertake academic research using original records at The National Archives.

The workshop will use original records held at The National Archives. It will focus on ecclesiastical collections and the interaction between church and state, and will equip attendees with tools to help them research ecclesiastical records. During each session you will receive tuition and guidance on a range of archival research skills from our medieval records specialists, and you will also undertake practical exercises involving hands-on document work.

At the end of the workshop you will have an increased understanding of the records related to church and state in the middle ages held at The National Archives, and the confidence to search the catalogue using techniques practised on the day.

This event is aimed at current taught postgraduate and PhD students, although other researchers are welcome to attend. There are no pre-requisites for attendance.

This is a one-day workshop on site at The National Archives. Tea and coffee at registration is provided as well as lunch.
