Friday 10 September - Sunday 19 September 2021

Archive and census material combine to create a digital trail, detailing the lives of some of Winchester’s past residents, spanning just over half a century. Covering a diverse range of people and places, from the lodging houses in the Brooks area to the former terraces behind the Cathedral, participants are encouraged to learn more about the day to day lives of ordinary Winchester residents, including many who might otherwise have been forgotten or for whom Winchester was merely a short stop on a much longer journey.

The event will comprise of a digital map highlighting some of our favourite stories, and will also be streamed live via our social media channels. Use the digital map to stroll around Winchester city centre at your leisure and experience the locations yourself, comparing the sights and sounds of the nineteenth century with today's!

This digital event is organised as part of the Heritage Open Days festival, by students from our Cultural Heritage and Resource Management course.
