Preserving the voice of the past
Interested in oral history?
For almost half a century, the Oral History Society has supported people who want to record and preserve spoken history and share it with others. We encourage people of all ages to record their own and other people’s life stories.
If Homes Had Ears is a new, light-touch digital exploration of the spaces that define our homes. Launched by the British Library in the summer of 2020, the website uses oral histories and other gems from our sound archive to capture how people regarded their domestic spaces throughout the twentieth century.
