This case study was the result of partnership work between Norfolk Record Office and the Parliamentary Archives. It formed part of the De Montfort project, which took place in 2015 as part of Parliament's wider 2015 Parliament in the Making programme.
The project explored the life and impact of MPs and Peers on both their local area and at Parliament. For this case study participants spent time conducting both independent and group-based archival research at both Norfolk Record Office and the Parliamentary Archives. This enabled participants to gain experience in and build confidence of working with archive records.
