Postponed: Recording Our Built Heritage: Headstone Manor

31.03.2020
Headstone Manor and Museum, Pinner View, Harrow, HA2 6PX

At MOLA we take the health and welfare of our staff, volunteers and the wider community very seriously and have therefore taken the decision to postpone or cancel all public events for the next four weeks in order to help safeguard against the spread of COVID-19. This means we will not be running any events – indoor or outdoor – until at least 14 April 2020.

 In line with UK government guidance, we feel this is the responsible thing to do and is an important precautionary measure to help keep people safe. We will be contacting everyone who has previously signed up to attend one of our events to advise them of our decision.  

 We will continue to review the situation and look forward to resuming our engagement events programme when it is safe to do so. If you have any queries or concerns in the meantime, then please contact Magnus Copps mcopps@mola.org.uk/07801 572848

Archaeology isn’t just digging – sometimes archaeologists record buildings which are still standing, too. How do archaeologists interpret buildings? What features do they look for? What tools and techniques do they use?

Find out more at this free workshop led by one of our buildings archaeologists, as part of Layers of London, a ground-breaking interactive online mapping project. Over the course of half a day participants will explore Headstone Manor, a site with over 1200 years of history, through the eyes of a standing buildings archaeologist, learning what to look out for when recording historic buildings through a series of fun practical activities.

Spaces are limited to 10 people.

We are delivering this workshop as part of Layers of London, which is led by the Institute of Historical Research and supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
