Special event 3 September 2013. 4.30-7.30pm

Conserving damaged documents

Would you like to find out more about the On the Beat Project?

Come along to Hertfordshire Archives on 3 September 2013, when we will be celebrating the project so far and showing what we have been doing.

Our conservators will be giving tours of the conservation studio and demonstrating how they have rescued boxes of water damaged and mouldy documents so that they can be preserved for the future.

There will be a talk about how the project began with the discovery of some old police records and an exhibition. Original documents will be on display for you to examine.

If you are feeling brave, you can have your fingerprints taken, or you can take part in our easy quiz about crimes on the home front during World War I.

You can also find out how to contribute to this website – it’s easy!

There will even be refreshments – and it’s all free.
