The heritage of Northamptonshire matters

If you have documents or photographs of historic value relating to Northamptonshire, and its people, that you want to be preserved and made available for the public to see, then you may be able to donate them to us. We will then preserve them, making them accessible to the public for years to come.

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.

To make a donation of documents to the Archives Service, please email archivist@northamptonshire.gov.uk to make an appointment. To contact the Finds Liaison Officer to discuss an object you have found, please email flo@northamptonshire.gov.uk

Access to the Record Office is strictly by appointment only. To ensure social distancing and to keep everyone safe during the Covid-19 pandemic, we will not allow anyone without an appointment into the building.
