Oral Histories Captured

Bournemouth University Student Interviews

From 2020 – 2021 the Chase & Chalke Landscape Partnership worked with Bournemouth University on a project titled ‘Socially Distanced Encounters of a Rural Kind’ which comprised of final-year BA (HONS) History students learning to become Oral Historians. During the project, the students worked to produce recorded oral interviews with people who have a connection to the landscape of Cranborne Chase. The interviews took place during the Covid-19 pandemic so were conducted online. View the playlist of interviews on youtube here.
