What is the project?


In brief, the aim of the project is to map out the records of the 100 oldest limited liability companies still registered at Companies House, Edinburgh. Scotland has a rich and diverse business heritage, yet often these important records and archives are underused and underappreciated. This project will attempt to both celebrate the rich diversity of records already held in archives, increase awareness of and access to existing collections and hopefully provide an impetus to companies holding records Here are the project aims and outcomes
