Special Collections in their new home


The Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society Library and University Archive are currently in storage before moving to Delta Place in Cheltenham in the autumn, remaining closed to visitors until then. Over the last two weeks staff at FCH have been busy wrapping and packaging 1,110 boxes of books and archives! We look forward to unboxing these collections in their new home.
