IHR Summer School on Local History

Places are running out quickly for the forthcoming IHR summer school, taking place at Senate House on 4-6 July 2013 on the subject of Local History in the towns. Last year’s summer school proved to be hugely popular with individuals fascinated with local history and the event quickly filled up. We are expecting this year’s summer school to be equally popular, if not more so.
