The Sustainability of Archaeological Archives in Museum Stores

Historic England have launched a project looking at the sustainability of archaeological archives in museum storage.  If you are responsible for archaeological collections and charge for the transfer of archaeological archives then please participate.

The aim of this project overall is to provide a comprehensive survey of the charges required by museums for the transfer of archaeological archives.  We also want to explore how museums decide what to charge and how the fees are used by organisations.  This project will compliment other recent activity by the Society for Museum Archaeology, not duplicate it.

I will be contacting individual museums and staff members, but if you’d like to get in touch in the meantime please contact Stefanie Vincent at SVincent@Swindon.gov.uk.
