Workshop: Buried Histories at London Metropolitan Archives, 11 January 2014

Invitation to Buried Histories at London Metropolitan Archives

How did Londoners deal with death in the past? Find out what archival records reveal about Roman burial rituals, medieval plague pits and Victorian macabre…

In the morning, we’ll have presentations based on archival material, revealing stories of old rituals and forgotten burial grounds, and featuring some rather bizarre ideas for cemeteries. There will be a chance to explore some original documents. In the afternoon, a treasure hunt will help you discover London’s hidden burial grounds and connect the stories from the archives to the physical space around you. The game will mostly be based in Clerkenwell and the City.

LMA is the largest local authority archive in the UK and holds a vast number of written and audio-visual material from London; the oldest document in our collection dates from 1067. We regularly organize talks, workshops, and conferences. Find out more about our events at www.lma.eventbrite.co.uk.
