This Archive consists of 7,995 mostly unpublished manuscripts containing information on a variety of folklore material. They derive from fieldwork carried out by the Centre’s Research Staff Members, by external associates of the Centre and by members of the public with a personal interest in Greek folklore. The oldest manuscripts of the Folklore Archive consist of the Politis material, which are numbered independently from 1-3149. Some of these items date from the early years of the 19c. The addition of manuscripts to the Archive and their processing are part of the archival work of the Hellenic Folklore Research Centre. As part of the Centre’s participation mainly in European programmes, all the Archive manuscripts have been converted into computer-readable form.
