New website launched that provides information for community groups involved with heritage projects

A new website that provides information for community groups involved with heritage projects has been launched by the School of History.

The Building and Enriching Shared Heritages project, led by Professor Roey Sweet (pictured), covers many topics and includes advice about doing research, using archives, interpreting historical sources, oral history, engaging the public, archiving, copyright, publishing, and looking for funding for a project.

The website also contains podcasts and videos, and all the information is available as downloadable documents.

‘Building and Enriching Shared Heritages’ is the result of an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funded project to build relationships between the School of History and local community groups who have been researching history under the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) ‘All Our Stories’ scheme.
