Peter Cooper – Stories from Needingworth Mapping
Peter began developing an interactive mapping system two years ago that provides users with a multilayer view and a multi-time view of the mapped area. He began his work building up information for his ‘One Place Study’ of Holywell-cum-Needingworth overlaying land maps, 1800 enclosure maps, estate maps, OS maps, land valuation documents, Bartholomew and other historic maps and census information.
Peter is a recipient of a 2018 Goodliff Award and will talk about what he has discovered as part of his research and will demonstrate his interactive mapping system and how this will be able to support local history and family studies.
Windows into a Tribal World: Iron Age Coins – Dr Rodney Scarle
Rodney is a member of the Longstanton and District Heritage Society, whose interest in early coinage and what they can tell us about the people who used them was stimulated by his interest in local archaeology. Over time he has built up quite an interesting and varied collection of coins and considerable expertise in them.
