Seeing the Light of Day workshops: Archaeological Collections & Sustainable Solutions

The Seeing the Light of day project team are organising two workshops this November.  If you work with or care for archaeological objects and collections, and are keen to hear the latest thinking on developing sustainable solutions to the management, accessibility and long-term preservation of archaeological archives in the south west come along!

The workshops will share the latest developments from the Seeing the Light of Day project and discuss the key recommendations for the museum and the wider heritage sector to take forward.  Each workshop will cover:

  • What to charge – the true cost of collecting
  • Written Schemes of Investigation – enabling archiving
  • Digital archiving – what to do
  • Improving communication
  • Shared storage – what to do
  • Public engagement – promoting research and enabling community engagement

Join us on:
