The Skirret


The Skirret is a repository for articles, papers, and documents of Masonic interest. The materials are arranged in two sections: the Library and the Archive. These sections reflect the provenance of the materials.

The Library contains documents collected for research projects, sorted by category and author.

Most of the files in the Archive were inherited from the Travelling Library. These files have been edited and re-formatted.

Please note that the Skirret site was not designed for viewing on cellphones.
