About the Project
King’s Cross Story Palace is a two year HLF funded project led by Historypin and the Building Exploratory. We aim to create a community-led history of the King’s Cross area over the past 100 years. We’ll do this through a programme of story gathering activities, public events, exhibitions and printed materials.

The Role
We are looking for volunteers to help carry out desk-based and archival research on the history and heritage of the King’s Cross area, to enrich personal histories for inclusion in a digital archive. Research Volunteers will work closely with the project’s Content Producer and Public Engagement Officer to help with the inventory of institutional archives and the scanning of archival material.
