Our widely respected Archives and the User series of publications gives essential introductions to historical sources including education, nonconformity, manorial records and seals.


The BRA survey of Risks to Historical Records in the East of England and London Regions published in 2012 is available as a free download.  The BRA is working with TNA and the Legal Records at Risk project to implement its recommendations.
