RCAHMS Centenary Workshops
#1
As one element in RCAHMS' celebration of our first hundred years a series of four research workshops is being held in 2007-8. The RCAHMS Centenary Workshops will explore important aspects of Scottish culture and society where RCAHMS can contribute significantly to the public understanding of national cultural identity in collaboration with a wide range of institutions across Scotland.

Attendance at these workshops is by invitation only. Following each workshop a related online discussion forum will be launched; contributions are invited from anyone who would like to participate.

The discussion I am involved in is quite exciting...
http://centenary.rcahms.gov.uk/workshop3/discussion.php

SO I am opening up the discussion here as well.. soon the papers from this workshop;
Artefacts, Records, Monuments and Sites will be up as well...

But to start you off... have a read of the site and look at the concepts involved, the use of artefact, the information required, the potential information that is available, the need for keeping/chucking. How to relate artefact to location... etc...
