About us

The Archives of Rural History (ARH) are an independent institute active in archiving of sources, scientific research and the dissemination of information and knowledge. Since its foundation in 2002, the first "virtual" archives in Switzerland have developed into a centre of archiving and historical research on rural society. The ARH are insofar a "virtual" archive as the archival holdings we catalogued are usually deposited in state archives or kept by the creators of the records themselves.
