There are also new daily drop-in sessions to introduce first-time visitors to the range of services available at The National Archives and show you how to make the most of our resources. These free sessions start at 11:30 and last for approximately 30 minutes; pre-booking is not required.


Most talks and lectures will be available as podcasts soon after they have taken place.
