The National Archives calls for contributions to new blog series
Academic researchers are invited to share their stories on the theme of 'connecting collections'
Archival research can lead you to surprising locations – and conclusions. Have you consulted a record in one archive whose value only became clear when contextualised with a record held elsewhere? Perhaps you have tracked down a document and found yourself as intrigued by its location as its content? Or aimed to link collections together?
The National Archives would like to share your eureka moments via 'Connecting Collections', a blog series exploring the connections between archives across the UK and around the world.
The series will cover your methodology and experience of archival research as well as your area of study. It is hoped that your story will both enrich people's understanding of the possible connections between archives, and encourage researchers to be adventurous when planning their own journeys.
