Bringing together testimonies as well as images, audio recordings, and newspaper clippings, the Covid Archive Project will aim to tell future generations of the real-lived experiences of the last 16 months.

Clare said: “Social History is so important as it tells us about how people lived; what events impacted on their lives.
