You can’t help wanting to know more about the history around you when you’re living in or close to a World Heritage Site. That’s why we hold our very popular Research Workshops.
Whether it’s for personal interest, or a group project, you might feel a little overwhelmed about how to get started.
Our Research Workshops will help you to understand what information is out there and how you can access it. You’ll be able to hear stories from others on how they got started. You’ll also hear some of the pitfalls to avoid and problems you can overcome.
You’ll learn what’s available online, and how to explore archives. There will also be information on how to use the World Heritage Site Research Framework and how to archive your research.
They are a chance to share ideas and find out more about how to uncover historical facts.
