Norwich case study
This case study is the result of a partnership between the Parliamentary Archives, Parliamentary Outreach and Norfolk Record Office. It is part of the People and Parliament: Connecting with Communities project which was launched in July 2009.
The Communities project explores the impact of Parliament on local communities and investigates how people have influenced Parliament. We do this by researching material held in the Parliamentary Archives at Westminster, as well as records held locally by regional archives.
A case study about taxation was also produced as a result of the partnership with Norfolk Record Office.
