cablestmural.jpg History geek heaven happens at the London Metropolitan Archives this weekend in the shape of Archives for London's annual conference investigating six revolutionary movements that sparked to life in London from the 15th to the 20th centuries.

On the podium are researcher, David Sutton, on the Spa Fields Riot (1816); social action historian, Sean Creighton, investigating the London riots and Bloody Sunday (1886-7); archive manager at The Women’s Library, Teresa Doherty, examining Women’s suffrage (1914); educationalist and writer, David Rosenberg, on the battle of Cable Street (1936); and historian, Dave Welsh, on Notting Hill.

If you've an interest in London's radical history or just enjoy rootling about in archives then this is a golden opportunity to enter into lively discussion with like minded history fans, archive users and practitioners.
