The History Archive is a non-profit digitization project devoted to preserving important materials related to the written and pictorial history of man.
We aim to provide access to relevant public domain books, maps, art and other works that are of monumental significance to mankind.

Modern society is changing very rapidly and these works are essential in understanding the development of our world and the various cultures that reside within it.
It is our duty to preserve images and documents of the past as the technology has never existed before now. Throughout the centuries valuable historical material has been irretrievably lost and we can finally now prevent this.
Our collections are divided into topics and regions as well as can be searched by author, date, and language as well.
Our archived materials encompass history, archaeology, science and span every region of the globe.
We also have collections on early world exploration, maritime travels and the colonial period as well as many others.
