The aim of Local and Community History Month is to increase awareness of local history, promote history in general to the local community and encourage all members of the community to participate. You can find further information and details of events on the Historical Association website.
Why not use this month to find out about global historical connections in your local community? To find resources to help you, have a browse through the ones listed on our database under ‘History’.
