A collection of historical documents is being donated to Guernsey's Island Archive by the family of a prominent local historian.
Hugh Lenfestey died in February last year after a short illness, aged 77.
He dedicated many years to preserving medieval records and established the Island Archive in 1986.
His collection includes an index of Guernsey place names, a map of all the known fiefs and a list of property transactions from the 1400s.
Mr Lenfestey's family said they would donate his collection to the archive later in March.
