SCOTTISH GROUP OF INSTITUTE OF FIELD ARCHAEOLOGISTS SEMINAR

What Conservation can do for the Archaeologist and the Archaeologist can do
for Conservation

Wednesday 21st May 2003
Conference Room, Historic Scotland, Longmore House, Salisbury Place,

The aim of this seminar is to maximise the amount of information that can be
garnered from artefacts by highlighting and improving the information
exchange between conservators and archaeologists. This includes: practical
care of artefacts from excavation to museum archive; information that can be
retrieved from artefacts; presentation of the data and the site archive;
future use of the site archive and artefacts within a museum setting.
