Society for Museum Archaeology: Museums Collecting Archaeology Report

(Are Museums Running out of Staff, Space and Time?)

For a number of years Historic England has supported the gathering of information on local authority staffing levels in planning and Historic Environment Record (HER) services but there has been no concomitant survey of museums, despite such institutions supporting archaeological project work through the curation of archive material.

The first of three annual reports commissioned by Historic England and produced by the Society for Museum Archaeology (SMA) has now been released, using quantitative and qualitative data gathered by online survey from 200 respondents in England that represent museums which collect or hold archaeological material.

The report is available to download from the SMA website here. Any questions or feedback relating to the report can be directed to the SMA via their website here.
