Layers of London is a collaborative project led by the Institute of Historical Research to engage the people of London in developing a record of the city’s past, using layered historic maps to record hundreds of thousands of stories, recording fresh and neglected voices, perspectives, memories and histories.
The Layers of London team are offering a placement opportunity in the coming autumn months for students to get involved in the project’s research, and to present case studies of the historical information the project can present to the public.
The project are asking for volunteers to give between 4-5 hours per week between 8th October and 10th December. All travel expenses will be paid, and training and a dedicated working space in London will be provided.
