600+ years of stories from St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle
For over six centuries, the archives of St George’s Chapel have been kept in the Lower Ward of Windsor Castle. These Archives belong to one of England’s few remaining royal peculiars and, along with its rare book library, offer an account of the history of property ownership by the church and the land’s occupants across England and Wales, tell about the Chapel's royal connections and present to researchers stories of those who lived and worked on the site. Looking through the Chapel’s history and records, Kristen Mercier will demonstrate how to best access records from the medieval to modern periods, and walk you through the history of record-keeping itself in over half a millennium at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
