#explorearchives For your dissertation

History finalist Rob Allan is using original diaries held in the Archives as source material for his dissertation. Written during the First World War by Septimus Bennett (brother of the author Arnold Bennett) the diaries describe life and work in and around a Sheffield munitions factory. Rob says “Archives are allowing me to explore individual experiences. Using the diaries alongside secondary sources is giving me a better idea of what this period was really like.”
