Orkney Library & Archive - Highlighting selected collections Files: 5

Highlighting collections held at Orkney Library and Archive. We are very grateful to Lucy Gibbon, Assistant Archivist, for providing the material for this feature. Lucy will be selecting items of interest with a war-time connection. This is just a taste of the wealth of material held at the archive and recommend you visit the archives to see the original documents and more.

Artefacts Files: 2

Artefacts - provided courtesy of the custodial staff of the Scapa Flow Visitor Centre & Museum operated by Orkney Museums & Heritage.  As the museum has a wealth of fascinating artefacts and exhibits, we at ODIN decided that this was an excellent place to begin. However, we do hope that over time, ODIN members may wish to share their own artefacts and stories though this feature.
