Apprenticeship is one of the most enduring features of British history. Yet we know very little about how time spent as an apprentice fitted into the lives of people in the past. My Ancestor was an Apprentice is a research project led by Professor Patrick Wallis, of the Department of Economic History at the London School of Economics. It is part of a long-running project on apprenticeship that has generated a number of academic articles and books, including Apprenticeship in Early Modern Europe, published in 2019 by Cambridge University Press. Professor Wallis at the LSE is seeking help to fill in this gap in historical knowledge. If you can help further details are available at this link.
