Learning with Archives in Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent

Discover what the Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Archive Service can do for you. Whatever your age, learning with archives is exciting. Holding a letter sent by Charles I or Oliver Cromwell during the Civil War, or an Anglo-Saxon charter written over 1000 years ago, brings the past to life in a way that nothing else can.

For Schools - fun online learning resources; hands-on out of school classes for primary and secondary pupils; work placements; advice for teachers on using archives to enhance the curriculum; advice for parents.

For Universities and Colleges – advice for students on research using original sources relating to Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent; advice on placements; advice for lecturers on developing courses in collaboration with the Archive Service.
