Deep in the archive

Today I spent most of the morning with my head in the British Newspaper Archvie .

It is a fantastic resource for anyone interested in the history of the United Kingdom.

The reason why I say that is we are used to hearing all about the history of large cities such as London on the TV, but with the BNA you have access to contemporaneous reports from the towns and villages where we live. It provides a much stronger link to the history of our communities and for me, that is so fascinating.
