Philip Smith, Building Historian delivered a wonderful talk last evening in Armagh County Museum. Over 40 people attended and learnt about the different sources of online and offline information that are available for researching the social history of old buildings. We learnt about the rich sources of online and offline research such as the John Rocque Map of 1760, HED Historic Map Viewer, Valuation Revision Books, Street Directories, PRONI and various Newspaper Archives etc. A very successful evening with a captive audience who came away skilled to do their own social history research.
This workshop was delivered as part of the Armagh City Townscape Heritage scheme Armagh City Townscape Heritage scheme which is funded by @National Lottery Heritage Fund, ABC Council.
