When you ask someone about the National Archives, chances are it'll get them thinking about Medieval History, one of our specialities! As such, we have a range of products perfect for any Medieval fan:

Know someone who likes Medieval imagery and a good puzzle? Test your royal wits with The Medieval Puzzle Collection Book - 75 puzzles spanning a range of themes across centuries of rich world history, a perfect addition to the library.

Write your thoughts and sketch your sketches in a journal book fit for a Medieval monarch - a Medium Handmade Leather Album Journal! Made with premium paper and leather and embossed with the Tree of Life symbol, it's a fantastic age-worn alternative to the modern notebook.

Get your mate a Polished Cow Horn Tankard to enjoy their favoured tipple in this Christmas! Cow horn is the original and organic version of plastic, with all the positives without the negatives, so it's great for drinking utensils!

Chain main was in Medieval times the height of warfare technology but it looks just as stunning when used in jewellery, such as this Chain Mail Inspired Necklace - a subdued yet still stunning piece of jewellery, perfect for any event and a great gift this Christmas!

A tasty treat inspired by an item from the National Archives' own collection, King Henry VII's Great Seal Chocolate Replica is a weighty piece of high-quality Belgian chocolate moulded using the actual Great Seal of Henry VII in our collection! A perfect piece of history that you can eat too!

The symbol of controversial King Richard III, here the wild boar is now a cuddly soft plush! The Richard III Wild Boar Plush Soft Toy is a great cuddly companion wearing a necklace with a boar motif inspired by Richard III's banner, a great gift this Christmas!
