Mr Rob Petre
College Archivist
+44 (0)1865 286545

I am Durnovarian born and raised, and I arrived at Oriel in 2004 after 14 years in local authority archives in Cornwall and Bristol. I have degrees in history from York and archive administration from Liverpool.

I see the main point of my job as preserving the documentary heritage of the College (whether those documents are paper, parchment or pdf) and making them available for research. There is also a commitment to collecting artefacts where practicable, so the job could be described as being an historical squirrel.
