Webinar: Why did people fear the Victorian workhouse?
08 July 2014
The workhouse was a major feature in the lives of the poor, whether or not they were ever inmates themselves. This webinar will help you to explore records in The National Archives, showing what life was like inside the workhouse, and how it was viewed by those outside. The session will last no longer than one hour.
Paul Carter is Principal Specialist in modern domestic records. He has a particular interest in poor law records.
