After the initial presentations of the county, the County Council and the County Archives, the students were taken on a tour of the archival storage rooms. The students showed great interest and asked many relevant questions.
The rest of the day the students worked in groups. Several of the employees at the County Archives had prepared topics and assignments and took charge of guiding the groups of students through their respective tasks.
Some of the groups compared the access to public archives in Norway and in their home countries, one group studied parts of the the private archives of missionary Malla Moe from Hafslo, one groupd focused on place names and the last group on traditional folk music from the area in which their college is situated, Fjaler. The students' presentations at the end of the day showed theat they had reflected and learnt a lot about archives, place names and traditional music in their home countries by making comparisons to the way in which archis are made, treated and made public in Norway. The students' presentations of their assignments were excellent.
We at the County Archives would like to thank the United World College for their visit.
