Sam Bartle is The Archivist for Digital Preservation & Engagement at East Riding Archives. Based at The Treasure House in Beverley, the archive has documents dating back to 1129 and is one of only four local authorities that hold Registries of Deeds (a precursor to the Land Registry) dating back to 1703.

Sam talks to us about the career path that brought him back to his native East Riding and about the variety of work in a Local Authority Archive, from digital preservation and engagement strategy to covering the front desk and even dealing with floods.

The interview examines how Sam has used relatable content from the archive to engage with huge new audiences on social media. Sam talks about partnerships with other organisations, the success of the innovative AR project 'What Was Here?' and working with Max on https://picturearchives.org/
