Archaeological Archives at the Museums Association Conference

Issues relating to the deposition of archaeological archives with museums are complex. The priorities and concerns of archaeological units, planning authorities and museums are different and potentially conflicting. However, all parties generally have the same overall aim: the long-term protection of cultural heritage.

A session is being proposed at the forthcoming Museums Association conference in Brighton (3rd-4th October 2011) to explore these complex issues. The session would take the form of a panel discussion of the topic.

If you would be interested in being involved in this discussion, please get in touch with Rob Symmons This is an excellent way to raise the profile of archaeological deposition in the wider museum community.
