Why Eating the Archives?

Last week the State Records Office of WA launched Eating the Archives. Some of you might be asking ‘Why Eating the Archives?’ Those of us who work with the State archives collection, WA’s largest archival collection, know that there are many unexpected stories to be found in the State’s archives. The staging of State occasions, such as State Dinners, Luncheons, Balls, Garden Parties and the like, is revealed in great detail in the State archives.
