About this event

Join us for this special edition of our Reading the Archives event for Heritage Open Days 2022. Following this years theme ‘Astounding Inventions’ we are concentrating on how inventions changed the lives and shape of Norfolk. We will look at how the invention of the stream train lead to the coming of the railways in 1844, how the steam packet allowed people to travel to Norfolk by a different means, and how the invention of the aeroplane lead to Norfolk having 14 United States Army Air Force bases during the Second World War.

This event is presented on Microsoft Teams, you will be sent the link shortly before the workshop.
