COULD YOU POSSIBLY HELP ?
I’m putting together a book for Pen & Sword on Leicester in the Great War. I’ve got
a lot of photos of soldiers, but I need photos of women who were munitions workers,
pictures relating to Leicester industry in WW1, fund raising events and that kind
of thing. Matthew Richardson Matthew.Richardson@gov.im

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Leicester Oral History Archive starting
the formal recording of oral histories in the city.
As we look back on the achievements of the last 30 years we can also take stock of
what we are doing at the moment and look forward to what might happen in the future.
As usual, we have a variety of interesting speakers including:
Wendy Freer on using digital sound in small museums
Dr Simon Dixon on the ‘digital humanities’
Roger Kitchen on the work of the ‘Living Archive’
in Milton Keynes.
A full timetable will be distributed closer to the day but
the times will be approx. 10am to 4pm.
While drinks will be available, lunch will not be provided and it should be noted
that there is no disabled access to the room
we will be using.
To cover costs there will be an admission charge of £5
(£3 for students, retired, unwaged).
