Alert:

This course has been cancelled. Please register your interest and we will notify you of future courses of the same type.

Do you wonder who lived in your local community in the past or worshipped in its church? Or how many people lived there in past centuries? If so, this short course on local populations may be just what you are seeking. It will concentrate on three basic administrative units: the manor, the parish and the town.  While acknowledging the contributions of landscape and archaeological evidence, this course will concentrate on the numerous written records that all three units generated.  Samples from these records will be used to show how information about past communities can be extracted from them and how this information can be used to reconstruct some aspects of inhabitants’ lives.
