Diving in: Explore Your Archive week at NHSN

22nd November 2017

This week (18-26 November) is the annual Explore Your Archive week. Explore Your Archive is coordinated jointly by The National Archives (UK) and the Archives and Records Association (UK & Ireland), and aims to celebrate archives across the UK and Ireland.

Our Heritage Volunteer, Sarah Seeley, has been sharing some of the wonderful material we have in the NHSN archive on Twitter – @NEE_Naturalist. Every day has an individual theme, from catwalks to science. So far, our George Gibsone birds have been extremely popular!

Sarah says: ‘This has been such a fantastic opportunity to show off our stunning archive! I’ve really enjoyed delving into all the boxes and trying to find material to fit the daily themes. I’ve been volunteering in the archive for 2 years, and even in that time I’ve barely scratched the surface!’

There are still more treats to come, so make sure to have a look on our Twitter page (@NEE_Naturalist) and the related hashtags: #Explorearchives #Archivecatwalk #Ediblearchives #Hairyarchives #Archivescience #Lovearchives
