VCR E Lesson 3
Which word best fits the sentence?
Archives usually go back to the origins or beginnings of organizations or institutions, so remembering the meaning "to begin" can help with remembering the meaning of archive.
- Archives are not just limited to pictures and documents stored collectively in a library. The earliest archives were made on clay tablets by ancient societies. In the past, other societies did not have access to written records, so they used things such as textiles and figurines to keep records. Today, many archives are exclusively on the internet, containing digital audio and media files.
