Take advantage of a vast resource of UK history, suggests Tarja Moles


The National Archives is a nonministerial department and the official archive for documents created and gathered by UK central government departments and major courts of law. The archives cover a wide range of subject areas relating to UK history and they contain millions of historical records, most of them at least twenty years old and some dating back over 1,000 years.

The National Archives is located in Kew, South London, and the general public is welcome to visit and obtain a free reader ticket. If you’re doing any kind of research into UK history, it’s worth checking what they have to offer. Even if you can’t visit the archives in person, you can still research some of the material online. In fact, the website is a real treasure trove, so do take advantage of this resource. Here’s a brief overview of what’s available.
