National Archives, UK

Description The National Archives is the UK government's official archive and publisher. Our collection of over 11 million historical government and public records is one of the largest in the world. We hold some of our most iconic national documents, dating back over 1,000 years and have a complete archive of UK government websites (1996–Present). Our 21st-century role is to collect, manage and preserve the future of the government record, both digital and physical, and to make it as accessible and available as possible. Our collections represent an indispensable resource and as an originator and supporter of research, we maintain an innovative programme to develop and test new ideas, for the benefit of government, information and preservation professionals. We are recognised as an Independent Research Organisation by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. We were formed between 2003-2006 through the consolidation of four government bodies: the Public Record Office; the Royal Commission on Historical Manuscripts; Her Majesty’s Stationary Office; and the Office of Public Sector Information. We are an executive agency of the Ministry of Justice and a government department in our own right. Since 2011 we have been responsible for overseeing and advising the archive sector across England.
