Favourite thing in archive? An archivist

The young archivist team at Paganel Archives

We’ve been asked to blog about our favourite things in Archives for explore your archive week.  Archives are great, but my favourite thing in Paganel Archives are the young archivists. They’re (literally) what makes the Archives!

In a time of Libraries and Archives with ‘skeleton staff’, Paganel Archives has an energetic crew of young archivists, knowledgeable and able to handle whatever queries thrown at them.

Look out for more blogs from our team about their favourite archives at

Next time you come into contact with archives, or something from an archive, think about that team of archivists working through the ages to keep archives accessible to people like you.

Explore your archive week is is a joint campaign delivered by The National Archives and the Archives and Records Association across the UK and Ireland.
