The Friends of The Colchester Archaeological Trust


Discovery Day at Essex Record Office, Friday, 8th December

This event is not being run by the Friends, but you may want to be aware of it.

The aim of the day is to bring enthusiasts together and show some
examples of completed projects funded by the HLF with a view to
exploring future possibilities - the fund’s ‘First World War: Then
and Now’ grant programme will be running until the end of 2019 and is
a great opportunity to obtain funding for local research. Paul Rusiecki
will also be there to talk about his own work on the county’s war
experience and the Search Room will be opened for you to have a private
viewing of the jewels in the ERO’s First World War archival crown –
all this and a lunch too!

It is a free event, but please book your tickets by clicking on this link so they
have an idea of numbers for catering.
