The 2014 Explore Your Archive campaign will be running from 10th to 16th November and Worcestershire Archive Service is lending its voice to encourage the nation to engage with and value the archives that make up our national treasures.
Taking inspiration from the first Explore Your Archive campaign (2013) we have continued a year-long feature here on our Blog, which aims to highlight the Treasures that can be found by exploring our collections. To mark the 2014 campaign we will have displays on-site of some the items we have featured so far. Visitors to The Hive will have the chance to get involved with a range of events throughout November, including a Behind the Scenes tour and our popular Parish Records workshop. Also, several members of staff have been busy delving into the history and former residents of old Dandy Row in Worcester - an area that captured their interest with its cheery name. Using their extensive research across many of our collections we will be hosting posts for this feature all week here on the Blog to bring this forgotten street back to life and show just what you can find out by exploring archives.
Follow us on our Facebook and Twitter accounts throughout the campaign to find out more about what we are doing.
