The heritage of Northamptonshire matters

If you have documents or photographs of historic value that you want to be preserved and made available for the public to see, then you may be able to donate them to us.

If you have found artefacts such as coins or pottery, then you can have them recorded by the Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS) to add to the overall knowledge of the county's history. 

These are wonderful ways to contribute to the work of Northamptonshire Archives here at the Record Office.

A further statement about the changes to opening hours will be made tomorrow.
