The National Archives in London contain millions of documents on various historical areas that span hundreds of years. Eritrea was under the British Administration from 1941 to 1952.
This section will, for the coming months, post archive documents from that period. The contents of the collection range from the economic and political to administration and establishing order and managing social and tribal conflicts. The amount of material in store is literally inexhaustible and might even keep this column open forever. In the meantime however, Asmarino website will do its best to display documents whenever they are made available.
Asmarino hopes that this collection will reveal yet another aspect of an ignored or long forgotten Eritrean history. The documents speak for themselves and the reader is invited to make their own judgement.
Asmarino wishes to express its thanks to The National Archives - London.
