The Trust strives to preserve and protect places, buildings and items of historic importance or interest. We work to educate and inform residents and visitors and actively encourage Islanders to enjoy their national heritage.
Our main priorities are (a) collecting and safeguarding objects which have a strong association with the Islands, and (b) encouraging a deeper enjoyment and appreciation of local history and heritage.
The Trust makes every effort to develop the understanding we have of our history and to increase the amount and quality of information available –
• We have brought archaeologists to the Islands, to explore and map sites of early settlement and development
• We have contacts with museums and organisations all over the world who help to fill in gaps in our knowledge
• We help to maintain and build on Camp cemetery records
• We assist specialists visiting the Falklands on research trips
• We actively work to build up our records and archives
Of course, we also promote the Falkland Islands all over the world and are regularly contacted by researchers or individuals who are curious about our history.
