Archival history

The holdings of East Sussex Record Office (ESRO) make up the majority of the archives at The Keep. The earliest document dates from 1101, but we will consider taking in records from last week if we think they ’ll be of interest to future generations. ESRO ’s holdings cover the whole of East Sussex and Brighton and Hove. They record every aspect of its people, organisations, and way of life.
