Antonia’s Story: A Secret History

November 15, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Archives contain many secrets, waiting to be discovered. Yet accessing archives can be difficult. In this workshop, co-led by researchers with learning disabilities, you will find out how the story of Antonia Grandoni was discovered, a lady who lived with a learning disability 150 years ago. You will be able to see and try out the methods used to explore and analyse findings from a digital archive of very old medical books, and what this can tell us about living with a learning disability then and now. Come along to this workshop which shows that researching history can be inclusive, creative and fun.

In partnership with

The Brain Charity, Past & Present Society
