LIBRARIES across Portsmouth are holding a series of talks and workshops during Archive Week between November 19 and 25.

Talks include Portsmouth And The First World War, which will use sources from the city’s archive to tell the story of the people of the city during the First World War.

There will also be talks about researching your street and the stories of the people who lived there and workshops on how to read old handwriting.

The public will also get chance to delve into the University of Portsmouth archive.
