The Archives and Archaeology Service will house more than 26,000 records of historic sites and buildings and 12 miles of original documents. The Archives and Archaeology service provides a gateway to discover the history of Worcestershire, from the Ice Age through to the present day.

The Hive is place where history to open to all; to see archive treasures, to learn about archaeological finds, or to research. Whether you have been working on a project in depth for a while and want some advice on how to delve deeper, or are at the beginning of your search – or somewhere in between – our resources will be able to help you.
