Nearly a million documents that make up Winston Churchill’s archive, ranging from school reports, drafts of his famous wartime speeches, to cigar bills, have been made instantly accessible to students, historians, and even politicians looking for lessons from past coalition governments.

The entire archive, based at Churchill College, Cambridge, has been digitised enabling researchers, such as the director of its archive centre, Allen Packwood, “to find a needle in the Churchill haystack”.
