Good practice in archiving archaeological projects
One request from BAJR... will the Scottish IfA please get one of these workshops up in Schotchland please!

[Image: 2012-workshops-for-print.gif]
The IfA Archaeological Archives Group are organising 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 is 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.
