Explore Your Archive is a National campaign which aims to showcase the unique potential of archives to excite people, bring communities together, and tell amazing stories.
In 2018 the campaign will take place between 17th and 25th November.
The campaign showcases the phenomenal archival collections held by organisations across the UK and Ireland, whatever their size and scale, and wherever they are. It encourages everyone to discover the stories, the facts, the places and the people that are at the heart of our communities with many archives opening their vaults and inviting the public to experience, understand and take pride in the wealth and variety of material they hold.
Users are encouraged to join in the Explore Your Archive campaign on Twitter with opportunities to ask questions and share their stories and photos using the hashtag #explorearchives.
A variety of free events take place in archives across Wales. You can see a list of events at this website: exploreyourarchive.org
