Skills and methodology workshops


PAST skills and methodology workshops provide students with the essential skills needed to use the archives and records in their field. During each session students receive tuition and guidance on a range of archival research skills specific to their research area and undertake practical exercises involving hands-on document work.

These sessions are aimed at taught postgraduate and PhD students, although other researchers are welcome to attend.

All workshops are held over two days on site at The National Archives. Registration is £40, including refreshments on arrival and lunch on both days.
