The Economic History Society is pleased to offer bursaries – to include accommodation, where required – for attendance at a course entitled ‘An introduction to methods and sources for historical research’.

The course is an introduction, through arranged visits and lectures, to historical methods and to the sources available in London. It is organised and administered by the Institute of Historical Research and is open to students registered for a higher degree in history and cognate disciplines at a university within the UK.

Recent courses have included visits to the British Library Manuscripts and Map Collections, the Public Record Office, the Royal Commission for Historical Manuscripts, the Warburg Institute, Westminster Abbey Library and the House of Lords Archives.
