Reference Collections Foundation for Future Archaeology

This publication contains the proceedings of the 2004 international conference ‘Reference Collections: Foundation for Future Archaeology’.

Reference collections

The lectures and discussions addressed a number of questions: what is the purpose of reference collections, how can the professional world benefit from them, and how can they be established and curated? What is the status of a reference collection, and what is its potential function outside the archaeological field? This report presents recommendations made during the conference, which itself was an offshoot of another report, Op weg naar een Nationale Referentiecollectie Archeologie (Towards a National Archaeological Reference Collection).
