The Guardian newspaper now has a blog called, From the Archive. Interesting features pop up. For example, how playwright Vaclav Havel becames President of the Czech Republic, as reported in 1989. Take a look.
Archives aren't just dusty old papers (though hidden treasures lurk within). They also document the recent past. That's why the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is so proud that we now have a proper archive - and archive officer - of our own. Visit our Archives website here. Contact Stuart Harris-Logan if you wish to arrange a visit in person.
