Memory of a Nation dataset

This dataset tells fascinating stories drawn from treasures of the National Archives collection - http://naa.gov.au/visit-us/exhibitions/memory-of-a-nation/interactive.aspx

The dataset includes a digitised version of every original item that has been put on display in the Archives’ permanent exhibition Memory of a Nation, from its launch in 2007 through to the present day. This includes an original musical score of Waltzing Matilda, a petition for Aboriginal land rights from the Larrakia people of Darwin, and Charles Kingsford Smith’s 1921 application for a pilot’s licence.

The dataset covers around 500 record items (eg. a file, object or photograph in the NAA collection).
