Beyond the Physical: Hidden Treasures


Join HES Archives’ Digital Projects in celebrating the end of a four-year project through which we have preserved and made available online over half a million items. This gallery is one of three containing images hand-picked by the project team as part of our ‘Beyond the Physical’ Showcase, taking you on a photo-illustrated journey through some of the collections now available.

Our Hidden Treasures gallery takes you from hidden interior designs, enthralling archaeology and popular film locations, all the way to photographs capturing industrial beauty. Each image has caught our imagination while we worked to make HES archives more widely accessible online. Look out for a royal visit, an enchanting sunrise (or sunset?), a cosy pub and some intricate stained-glass art.

This is just the tip of the iceberg of material available, so make sure to check out our other galleries and go on your own treasure hunt throughout our collections on Canmore. For further information on the Digital Projects’ work, and links to our related galleries, visit our online Showcase at
