LHE Archives

Welcome to the Legal Histories of Empire archive

The Legal Histories of Empire archive (LHE archives) is a collaborative database of information (metadata) about archival holdings relevant to legal histories of empire. 

The LHE website also allows researchers to share their experiences in archives. What is it like to visit the Jamaica Archives and Records Department? Why do you need a packed lunch when visiting the State Records Office in New South Wales? Find out all this and more!

Help grow the LHE archive by contributing your own archival metadata or sharing a research project collection.
