Where the remains of the day lay: The Mauritius National Archives

Anonymous Patron writes Where the remains of the day lay
If one wants to learn more about the history of the island, the Mauritius National Archives is the place to visit. Born in 1721, it is a real treasury of knowledge well nurtured by a caring team.
As the acting assistant director of the National Archives, Roland Chung Sam Wan, explains, it’s not just the archives themselves that are valuable, but also the role they play in enabling historians to reconstruct the ways in which people once lived. For example, the notary deeds contain the records of sales and purchases of land.”
