Free course to help you get to grips with online heritage research

EVER WONDERED what the lumps and bumps are in the field by your house, or which buildings are listed in your village? Perhaps you are keen to find out what artefacts have been discovered in your area?

Join Heritage Lincolnshire’s Ian Marshman for a one session GROW course to see how the internet can help you explore the archaeology and heritage that’s on your doorstep. The course will take place at Nettleton village hall at 1.30 to 4.30pm on Wednesday December 3.

If you’re interested in the past but unsure about computers then this is the course for you as it will provide an introduction to the wealth of free online resources that can be used for research.

Ian explains; “There is an abundance of heritage information online. We will look at where to find out about archaeological sites and local excavations, how to discover what artefacts have been found locally and explore information on historic buildings, including how to learn more about their construction, what levels of protection they have, and their current state of preservation.

“Previous attendees have expressed how the course has given them a lot more confidence to research the records about places they are interested in”.

The course will be interactive and assistance will be provided to help you get to grips with the resources discussed. If you have a laptop or tablet computer then please bring it along as there will only be a limited number available on the day. The village hall has free WiFi for the benefit of attendees.

Free to new learners. Booking is essential. For an enrolment form please contact htladmin@lincsheritage.org or telephone on 01529 461499.
