Treasures from the Royal Archives

Treasures from the Royal Archives

  • Description

    Since 1914, the famous ‘Round Tower’ of Windsor Castle has been the secure and honoured home to the Royal Archives – an extraordinary collection of many thousands of documents and records dating back to the reign of Elizabeth I.

    This publication showcases, for the very first time, the treasures of this fascinating and internationally significant collection, ranging from records of affairs of state to personal letters, diaries and domestic jottings, recounting the stories of kings and queens, politicians, rebels, soldiers and artists in their own words – and painting a remarkable portrait of history through the passions, dilemmas and life-changing moments of the people who shaped it.

    The book is also accompanied by a free augmented reality app which thrillingly brings to life John Chard's eyewitness account of the defence of Rorke's Drift in 1879. Available to download here.
