The main concern of this thesis lies in the relationship and influence that History had on the development of Archival Science. The thesis also investigates the relationship between the two disciplines in modern and contemporary times. The first part is a chronological presentation of development of archives as a concept, with special focus on the influence of historians during that time. Historians are considered to be the main influencers, if not creators of some crucial principles in contemporary archival science. Though, with the need to expand the workload, historians began to take the role of users, rather than leaders and archivists. And so, the separation began. The other part of this thesis deals with this relationship today, and tries to suggest areas of archival profession in which historians could still work for the greater benefit of the archives (given the situation in the archives in Croatia).Also, a big part of the thesis is the solution to the growing dissipation of this relationship, which could be resolved by smart planning of curricula in archival and historian university education.
