The London History Day School is presented in association with the Centre for Metropolitan History (CMH) and will feature tutors from the principal archives and research units concerned with London. We shall cover the incredibly rich and abundant history of London and its surrounding area, exploring both its identity as a capital city but also the special qualities of its many constituent towns, vilages and suburbs. Participants will have ample opportunities to discuss their own work with each other and with the experts; the aim is to provide a showcase for London local history and a forum for the exchange of ideas, views and approaches.

This practical one-day workshop explores the need for good quality data in historical research, how to achieve this, and how to perform and present analysis based on historical research questions. A number of topics are addressed, primarily focusing on a broad range of querying techniques including: qualitative and quantitative analyses; the moving, shaping and programmatic altering of data; the automated generation of dependent and conditional data values; and the presentation and publication of research analyses in different formats. A reasonable familiarity with data modelling and common database tools is required.
