ARCHIVE TALK AND TOUR, THE HISTORIC ENGLAND ARCHIVE, SWINDON 
This visit will include a look into Historic England's archive collections, followed by a tour of the purpose-built archive itself - from the vaults to the Conservation Department, through insight into collections digitisation, finishing with time for Q&A and informal networking over light refreshments.

Details
Join us for a rare behind the scenes look at Historic England’s fascinating and extensive archive collections and to hear about their approach to conservation, care and access. In a tour and talk led by experts, we’ll take a look at some of the collections of photographs of England's buildings and historic sites held in Historic England's Archives, then explore issues around conservation, digitisation, caring for and access to this wide-ranging collection. 

This visit offers a unique opportunity to explore and discuss collections issues in a tailored tour with a small group of colleagues from across the sector. The event is aimed at people working in a professional capacity with photographic collections or archives, especially those with an interest or role in conserving and/or caring for collections.
