Morley College and the Cuming Museum are working together on a new different adult education course, offering participants the opportunity to understand the history of Southwark using real artefacts which they will be able to handle and discuss in the context of the development of the borough. These will include maps, postcards and posters as well as Roman pottery,  Tudor and Victorian items.

The sessions will be led by an experienced tutor of London history and the Museum Curator. No previous knowledge of this topic is necessary but an enthusiasm to engage with the group and the subject would be helpful. There will be opportunities to pursue the subject but there is no homework or expectation of additional study.

The course runs over five sessions on Wednesday afternoons, 2pm to 4pm, from 6 June to 4 July.
