Abstract: Archives designate the organised body of records produced or received by an entity in the transaction of its affairs and preserved by it. Hence, the National Archives Gozo, as other institutions of a similar nature, holds deposits of records of a public nature that are no longer in use for the purpose of administration. The state of affairs in Gozo up to the 1980s vis-à-vis archives was catastrophic, records were put away in a basement and left to rot. In 1989 the National Archives Gozo was created and it become the official public record office for the documentation produced and received by past and present Government departments and establishments of the islands of Gozo and Comino in 1990. The archive contains various documents, the oldest of which dates to 1373, divided into 26 sections. All of which are at the disposal of the general public to pore through and to study.
