Corona Captured a year on - documenting life in a pandemic

We live in extraordinary times. We are part of history and we are making history. And Bath Record Office would like you to record it.

There are, and will be, official histories of world events that will be accessible to all. But what most interests people – historians, researchers, children, adults, students, everyone – is how these events affected ordinary people.

Now that we have a vaccine which offers a way forward out of lockdown we can look forward to life returning to normal. We would like you to record how you were affected during the pandemic – your family, travel, work, school, exams, shopping. How your everyday life changed during the last year. Everyone can take part – from the youngest to the oldest.

You can deposit your diaries, photographs, sketches with the Record Office by appointment. Please contact us to let us know you would like to make a deposit.

If you have digital content (photos, videos, sound recordings or text documents) you can upload this to our website

Please see this document for guidelines and suggestions for compiling your diary. You must be a resident of, working in or studying in Bath & North East Somerset.
