Mass Observation Project, 1981-2009

For many, thoughts of the 1980s in the UK conjure images of the miners' strikes, Freddie Mercury at Live Aid, and the Royal Wedding, likely accompanied by a soundtrack of enduring pop classics.

But the 1980s is not only a pop culture treasure-trove, it was also a transformative decade socially, politically, and technologically.

The first module of Adam Matthew Digital's newly-published Mass Observation Project: 1981-2009 resource allows historians and social scientists to explore how the events and changes of the 1980s, both large and small, impacted the everyday lives of those living in Britain at the time.
