Archives are the documented memory of the nation. They tell our stories and help us understand who we are as individuals and as a nation. They underpin every aspect of education, science, health, culture, law and the historic environment. Archives inform the future by helping us to learn from the past.
Why Archives Matter: Heritage, Memory and Identity is the second in a series of events organised by the Scottish Council on Archives to promote greater awareness of the importance and usefulness of archives to many different sectors including education; healthcare; architecture; cultural heritage, both local and national; archaeology, academia; and genealogical research. The conference will feature presentations from academics, historians, archivists, architects and representatives of community archive groups.
