Manuscript Collections

The catalogues provide the key to unlock the riches of the archive collections at Southampton. There are four online catalogue databases, which give an overview of all the archive holdings of the Division and also focus in depth on three of the significant archive collections: those of the first Duke of Wellington, Earl Mountbatten of Burma and third Viscount Palmerston.
