London Archaeological Archive and Research Centre is buzzing with activity today!
We’ve already had two VIP tours (sadly soooo confidential I wasn’t allowed to take pictures and post them for your) but I can tell you about some of our fabulous volunteers.
Christie, Nathanial and Matthew are hard at work helping me to create a new, comprehensive and beautifully documented handling collection.
Matthew and Nathanial are adding info about each object to a spreadsheet -that will all then go on our Mimsy database:
One of these flagons is pretending to be an amphora -so our ceramics expert tells us.
Once we’ve data crunched all our Roman finds we then move on to… Building material! Here’s a selection of some of the Medieval material we’ll be working on.
We’re all going to become peg tile experts. And floor tile experts.
Our volunteers say:
“I love the gold dusted beaker!”
“handling all these ancient artefacts is amazing!”
More from us later 🙂
