Interested in researching local history? Been disappointed to find that only turgid accounts and monotonous registers survive for your locality? This course will show you how to squeeze important historical evidence out of some of the unpromising material that is most likely to have been preserved, and give you an opportunity to practice working on such sources yourself.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
