Abstract

The National Archives holds a wealth of records charting the history and impact of the Reformation in England. Yet whilst many have been mined by scholars, others remain underexploited despite their potential to offer a deeper insight into this period. This article discusses the formation of a programme to increase awareness and engagement: with the public as well as with academic researchers. This involved sharing the skills and knowledge needed to interpret these collections as well as creating Reformation-related local and regional outreach events and engaging with other archives and heritage institutions.
