What They Discovered at the Archives

Today, the children from Roman Hill Primary School visited Suffolk Archives in Lowestoft and from researching vintage advertising for everyday shopping items to examining press cuttings, maps and old documents, the pupils (and staff) made the most of their trip to Suffolk Archives.

Up the Hill Changes around Roman Hill

‘The buildings have changed a lot. Some have been demolished. It had more grass and fields. We now have to go to Barnard’s Meadow. The area changed from fields and allotments. Houses and roads were built like Yeovil Road where I live!’

How many documents and why do we keep them

20 million documents—’So each generation can learn about the past.’
