Revealing the Past, Knowing the Present, and Grounding the Future.

The main work for volunteers at the moment is to complete the catalogue of objects held in the collection. Most artefacts have been registered, but the catalogue needs to include information about them including photographs, dimensions and details of provenance. In particular, details of the accession documentation held in the Institute's archive need to be referenced in the catalogue.
