Recording Built Heritage

Recording Our Built Heritage: The Ragged School Museum

Ragged School Museum, 46-50 Copperfield Rd, London E3 4RR

Time: 11.00-14.00

Price: Free

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 the Ragged School Museum, a Victorian-era school that gave children a basic education, 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.
