Upcoming Explore Maps workshop at The Hive

  • 18th October 2014

‘All good adventures begin with a map’, according to the saying. We have thousands of maps here in our collections, and this workshop will help you with using them for your adventures in research.

Ordnance Survey, Tithe, Enclosure, New Domesday, Estate, Geological, GOAD and definitive maps are some of the types we’ll be looking at. We’ll discuss how they can be used, as well as how to search our indexes and catalogues to discover what we have.

The workshop is on Monday 3rd November, 10am-3pm, with a short break in the middle. Places cost £12 and should be booked in advance. You can book by emailing explorethepast@worcestershire.gov.uk, phoning 01905 766352 or by visiting the Explore the Past desk during our staffed opening hours.
