Description

This collection of records should prove of particular interest in the light of the 1990 unification of the Yemen. The collection reflects the following areas: affairs of the Imams of Sana, claims to sovereignty over Aden colony and protectorate, boundary questions concerning Asir and Saudi Arabia; affairs of the Sultan of Lahej, the British offer to purchase Aden, gathering of tribes to recapture Aden after its capture by the British in 1839; the Turkish occupation of Yemen in 1871, Anglo-Turkish boundary lines, division of Yemen into two parts; Aden as Britain's colony in the Arab world, and the direct and lengthy involvement of the British administration of the colony and protectorate as evident from the extent of the remarkable archives now stored in London. The Aden files, however, have been singularly difficult to survey and reproduce, partly because of the vast amount of material, partly because many records are preserved in huge, tightly-bound ledgers and partly because numerous documents are physically decaying and discoloured - with many files now closed to public access. For these reasons, as well as for the historical value of the documents themselves, these records remain a source work for the history of the area.
