The nature of archival research can vary depending on the size, scope and location of the collection involved, and this week’s project trip to the British Safety Council archive in Mansfield was no exception. As you can see from the picture below, the conditions were somewhat unusual!
Rifling through uncatalogued material is always exciting, as there’s no telling what the collection might hold. And our project researchers did come away with some interesting finds. More to follow on this later!
