Talk by Adam Corsini. Layers of London is an interactive map resource based at the University of London. The project has worked with partners including The National Archives, The British Library, London Metropolitan Archives and Historic England to gather together London’s most iconic maps and geo-reference them, enabling individuals to discover how areas have changed throughout history.
Additionally, the site encourages individuals to contribute their own content including local history, personal memories, and interesting facts to enrich the site with people’s own accounts and recollections of how areas have changed. In his talk Adam will present the site and demonstrate how it can be used and how people can get involved. The project can be accessed from layersoflondon.org.uk
Zoom meeting details will be made available to members via our monthly news e-mails.
