  • It is an educational site aimed at life long learners. Although focused on Hackney we hope it will prove useful to anyone interested in learning about the history of London. .

  • At the end of each time period is a section called Relics which highlights interesting objects from our past that can be seen in London, and particularly Hackney, and which museums you can see them in. It is hoped users will continue their learning in this way.

  • In addition we have developed two areas of the site; Victorian Hackney and Homes Through Time for family learning. These areas include suggestions for further learning through worksheets and visits, and also each have an interactive game which reinforces what has been learnt in a fun way.

  • Forum – this is an area where people can share memories with other people interested in Hackney’s history, or ask questions to other users. Perhaps you are researching your family history or can resolve someone else’s question. Maybe you know of a web site you think maybe of interest to other users.

  • Kingsland Road Panorama. This section offers a taster of our interactive CD-ROM guide to this unique and ancient road. If you would like to order the CD-ROM or the accompanying walking guide click here.

  • If you have a question about the site, or a suggestion, we would love to hear it. Contact us here.
