The archival collections of Eton College are made up of the college’s own records as well as those that have been collected for their historical significance. Many of these archives have regional, national or international importance.
Archives are the threads that stitch everything together.Collections blog, April 2019
Records of the college itself, shedding light on 500 years of the college’s history and beyond, with records of the estates dating back to the 11th Century.
Photographs of the college and school life, dating back to 1850.
British authors of poetry and prose, as well as theatre, music and military and social history are represented in 19th- to 21st-century archives and collections of personal papers held in College Library.
