Although silent, archives do speak volumes!
Celebrating his thirtieth year working in the archives, Malta’s National Archivist visited over sixty archives in Malta and Gozo and chose a selection of records from these repositories; it was a long process of engagement with the sources, their guardians and their users.
This personal narrative highlights sources, connections and different archival typologies and media while shedding light on a number of previously unknown archival treasures. The project draws attention to audio-visual content on an on-line platform. It evokes curiosity and seeks to inspire others to connect with our documentary heritage.
