Where the capital's past comes to life! London Metropolitan Archives (LMA) is the largest local authority archive in Britain. The collections cover the whole of Greater London and the City, spanning nearly a thousand years of history. London's extraordinary past and the lives of Londoners are represented here through millions of documents and thousands of maps, prints, drawings, plans, photographs and films. A visit to LMA is an exciting and enriching experience. The free learning programme for schools covers many areas of the National Curriculum, particularly History, Literacy, Humanities, Citizenship and Art. The educational workshops give schools opportunities to conduct in-depth investigations into topic areas that combine local and national history and to use this research to inspire creative activities. They also give young people the chance to find out more about archives and the important work they do in preserving everyone's history.
All workshops are offered free of charge and must be booked in advance. Where possible, certain sessions can be delivered as outreach on site at your school. If you would like to discuss something with the Team, then please contact us at LMALearning@cityoflondon.gov.uk.
