What is Truro Uncovered?

Welcome to Truro Uncovered - an exhibition and website based on the work of Truro Historical Project; volunteers and second-year students from the University of Exeter (Cornwall Campus). Images have been kindly provided by the Royal Institution of Cornwall; Cornwall Records Office, and the Cornish Studies Library. The oral recordings have been provided through a Knowledge Transfer Partnership with the University of Exeter (Cornwall Campus) working on recording the residents of five post-war Truro council estates.
