This week is Explore Your Archive week. From the 19 to 27 November is a national campaign to showcase the unique potential of archives to excite people, bring communities together, and tell amazing stories.
We are lucky in Dorset to have access to a huge range of materials ate our own Dorset History Centre. Many of our members, societies and individuals make use of the records and published material here to further their research.
You can get involved by:
– visiting the Dorset History Centre in Dorchester and start exploring – your family or where you live are great starting points
– follow the archives on twitter where stories and images from the archives are shared: @DorsetArchives
If you visit the Dorset History Centre this week you can collect a free badge or pencil whilst you’re there!
