Happy New Year from the Explore Your Archive team!

We are an Archives and Records Association (ARA UK & Ireland) platform set up to celebrate archives, records, and the people who use them.

We have monthly hashtags which we will share soon to inspire you to find archives to share, but in the meantime please tag us in any of your archive-related finds or stories - we'd love to share them.

In this article we look at Sir Walter Scott’s (famed writer of Ivanhoe) conception of the supernatural, before moving on to explore the significance of a rare anthology of ghost stories
