*Provenance: The history of the ownership of a work of art or an antique, used as a guide to authenticity or quality; a documented record of this. This is distinct from origin.
Archives are evidence! They reflect the way in which an organisation operated, what that organisation believed to be important, and are as close as you can get to what the archive creator actually thought at the time.
