From the cover: “The study of local history has become a very popular pursuit, and this book explains how to go about it. The general approach is one which sees the past in terms of people rather than places. The kinds of questions that may be asked about each local community and the sources which can be used to answer them are outlined in a practical way. Examples of studies made in various parts of the country are given and there are reproductions from many of the major nineteenth-century sources. The book, which is fully illustrated with maps, diagrams and plates, is complete in itself, but was an accompaniment to the series of BBC radio programmes of the same title, first broadcast 13 April to 15 June, and repeated 3 October to 5 December 1972.”
