Historic England launches survey into the charges required by museums for the transfer of archaeological archives

Historic England has launched a project looking at the sustainability of archaeological archives in museum storage. The aim of the project is to provide a comprehensive survey of the charges required by museums for the transfer of archaeological archives. It will also 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. If you are responsible for archaeological collections and charge for the transfer of archaeological archives, you can participate in the survey by contacting Stefanie Vincent at SVincent@Swindon.gov.uk
