This one-day workshop has been developed in partnership with academic historian and teacher, Dr Peter Claus. Individual students can book places on their own without their teachers. The aim of the day is to provide a unique opportunity for students to gain an insight into, and practical experience of, studying History at undergraduate level. The day is particularly suitable for students taking the Advanced Extension Award or who are thinking about applying to study History at university, although anyone who wishes to broaden their experience or understanding of history is welcome.
The day includes an introduction to The National Archives, seminars on historiography and working with original documents, time in the reading rooms for students to pursue their own research interests and a lecture by a guest historian.
Numbers for the day are limited to a small group of 15 to encourage open discussion and debate. A full programme of the day, plus preparation information will be sent out in advance. Early booking is recommended.
This session can be delivered as a
