Looking After Archives

Many archives are hundreds of years old, and often have been damaged by water, fire, insects but they can often be repaired, restored and preserved for future generations.

The Hampshire Archives Trust have supported the work of conservators to rescue and give new life to old archives.

The Hampshire Record Office provides excellent information on the preservation of archives and the Trust is happy to support, where it can, projects that result in the saving or archival material so that it can be seen and used by future generations.
