Join Vanessa Hodge, Head of Records at Historic Royal Palaces as she delivers our Lunchtime Lecture entitled:

Sharing Our History - Transferring Records to the National Archives

The Information Management team at Historic Royal Palaces have been on a mission to review historic public records created before we became an independent charity in 1998.

Many of the records are now available for researchers, the public and future generations at The National Archives, Kew. The records reveal fascinating stories of life and work at the palaces throughout the 20th Century and provide unique insights into major events in the history of these buildings, including the fire at Hampton Court Palace in 1986.

The process of selection, review, redaction, closure, preparation and transfer is both challenging and complex and requires very specialist skills.

Find out more about this project and some of the knowledge that has been uncovered in the process.
