Event details

Did you know Explore York Archives holds over 1.5 miles of archives if you placed them end to end? Join archivists for this hands-on workshop, helping them to process some of these archives before they are made available to the public.

The workshops will involve packaging the archives using suitable preservation materials, and checking the contents of boxes. It will introduce you to a wide range of the types of archives held by Explore York Libraries and Archives. No experience is necessary – just bring your enthusiasm!

Please note there are three different sessions running during the day. Please state which session you are interested in when booking.
