    Dorset History Centre worked in partnership with the National Trust on an exciting project that focused on one of Dorset’s largest and most significant archive collections, that of the Bankes family. This collection is stored in 800 boxes dating from the 13th century to the present. If it wasn’t for the immense commitment of the volunteers, this collection would have remained unknown to many of us.
