Provincial Archives

Provincial Archivist E. Comp Paul Dicken

In 2009, the Province of Somerset appointed the first Royal Arch Provincial Historical Co-Ordinator — later Provincial Archivist — to begin the long-term documentation and preservation of historical records relating to Royal Arch Masonry in Somerset. The results of this project were published in an exhaustive and well-illustrated hardback book, Royal Arch Masonry in the Province of Somerset from 1765 in 2018.

Moving forward, the Provincial Archivist is beginning work on the construction of a searchable digital archive for these historical records, both to help preserve our ever growing number of documents, and to allow Companions across the Province easy access to historical information relating to their own Chapters and to Royal Arch Masonry in Somerset.
