Peterloo to the Pankhursts – FREE online course

A collaboration from PHM and Royal Holloway, University of London, this new online course uncovers a century long struggle for rights and representation, from the Peterloo Massacre 200 years ago to the first women winning the right to vote in Britain.

Supported by the History of Parliament Trust, Parliamentary Archives and The National Archives, Peterloo to the Pankhursts will offer learners the chance to see original artefacts and documents, watch compelling historical testimony and speeches, and explore our democratic heritage with expert guidance from historians, archivists and curators.

No prior knowledge is required to take the course, which is open to all via FutureLearn from Monday 12 August. Part of Royal Holloway’s Citizens project, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
