Sampad staff get a blast from the past

On 10th April Sampad staff and PHD student Dave Richardson went to the Library of Birmingham for an introduction to the contents and purpose of the Birmingham Archives, which is hosted within the Library building. Led by Izzy Mohammed and Rachel MacGregor, the visit allowed staff to see some of the oldest items in the archives, including a parchment from 1140AD. They then received training on the procedure for cataloguing donated items, which is essential for all the documents we are collecting as part of the My Route project.

If you have a document or photograph that tells a story about life around Stratford Road and which you are happy to donate to Birmingham Archives, please find out how you can contribute here.
