Society for Museum Archaeology Conference

We attended the Society for Museum Conference at Colchester Castle Museum (5th to 6th November 2014). We circulated information about the project to the attendees, and made a short announcement. It was a good opportunity to discuss the project and explain what we hope to achieve

Pottery fabric series are a key reference resource that are often curated by museums. These resources have been developed over many years, and are an essential tool for comparing assemblages from different archaeological excavations and a building block for synthetic research. We are in contact with colleagues in museums and assembling information on archaeological reference resources.
