This series has come to an end now and there will be a plenery discussion in September.
The Archives Group have organised a series of regional workshops designed to promote good practice in working with archaeological archives, to provide hands-on experience and encourage participants to engage with archive issues by considering new perspectives.
It was intended that a mixed group of archaeologists from all areas of the discipline, including planning archaeologists, contractors, museum curators, specialists and consultants will share experiences, issues and viewpoints so that everyone develops a greater awareness of the problems and possible solutions around archiving archaeological material.
A hands-on practical session with archive materials will require participants to form into groups that will compile an archive in readiness for deposition, check an archive prior to deposition or search a digital archive to answer a specific set of queries.
The afternoon session will set a series of questions to different groups, who will then share their deliberations and conclusions in a final discussion.
There will also be an opportunity to discuss specific issues that participants wish to raise from their personal experience.
The cost of the workshop is £10 for IfA members and £16 for non members. This can be paid by cash or cheque on the day or we can send you a Paypal request or Invoice.
