Hello and welcome to my penultimate blog, working at the Mills Archive Trust, where I write about a myriad of intriguing aspects of working at the Archive. So what is on the menu for this week’s blog? Well, I think it would be fascinating to explore the variety of books we have in the library pertaining to social history. But before we delve deeper into that, you may ask: what is social history? Well, according to Mr/Mrs Google, social history is a field of study looking at the lived experiences of people in the past. This is quite a broad definition of social history, but in effect, social history is a facet of history which concentrates on the social, economic, and cultural institutions of a people.
