Local History

A Local History Toolkit

About the project

Teams at LEARN have embarqued on the process of building a collection of guides, tools, strategies and project examples to help you explore the history of your region, all the while in the context of our respective subject areas and fields/scopes of interest.

A fundamental question began our journey: How can learning about local history help me understand myself and my community? For an overview of where and why we began this collection, read our blog entry Learning in Place: Working towards a local history learning toolkit.

Investigations - Guides and Tools For Research

Finding traces!

In people and places you will find traces, that can provide entry points to learning about a region. You can discover these traces  through interviews, through site visits, by examining photographs, documents, objects or artifacts, etc.
