Explore Your Archives


This week, here at Archives, Heritage and Photography we are embracing the Explore Your Archives Campaign. This a joint campaign run by the National Archives and the Archives and Records Association to raise awareness of archives and to encourage everyone to explore their history.

At AHP, we are getting involved by linking in with events which we hope will encourage visitors to take an interest in archives and history. Coming up…

There is still also plenty of time to visit the Gallery on floor 3 of the Library of Birmingham for the Voices of War exhibition which is running until the end of December.

As for the Iron Room? Each day this week we will have a new article showcasing collections we have discovered, detected, connected …….

There is a living memory out there, preserved in the form of vast archive collections housed around the country, waiting for us to learn the secrets of the past. So why not start your journey of discovery today and see what archive treasures you can find.
