The National Archives is the UK government's official archive. We are guardians of some of the most iconic national documents dating back over 1,000 years. We give detailed guidance to government departments and the public sector on information management and advise others about the care of historical archives. Our role is to collect and secure the future of the record, both digital and physical, to preserve it for generations to come, and to make it as accessible and available as possible.
