Arundel Museum Society

Oral History Volunteer

Arundel Museum was founded in 1964; it is an independent, accredited, museum run totally by volunteers who are members of the Arundel Museum Society.

Arundel Museum exists to acquire, conserve and display objects related to Arundel's history and heritage; they want to create a gateway to the past in an exciting and inspiring learning environment which is accessible to all.

Oral History Volunteers are required to interview older people, recording memories of their lives, experiences and local events (this is done in the older person's home.)  The interview is then transcribed into to a computer, themes are analysed and the final copy is produced. Interviewers need to have a pleasant manner and be used to dealing with people, whilst transcribers need to be confident using a computer with good literacy and typing skills.
