This would certainly be of interest to people in & around the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership area who want to know more about their local history, hence the re-blog:
Since Eleanor Wilkinson reported on the first stage of the University of Cambridge Museums-funded project Connecting Local Communities with Local Archaeology in March, the project has been going from strength to strength.
The Cambridgeshire region has a growing number of archaeology and history societies with a passionate interest in their local area, but most of these groups had no idea that the Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology (MAA) not only holds the most comprehensive collection of archaeology material from East Anglia, but is also available for behind-the-scenes visits. In the project’s first stage, Eleanor collaborated with the Jigsaw Cambridgeshire local archaeology network, to identify local societies and encourage them to arrange a visit to the Keyser, MAA’s archaeological workroom, to view artefacts from their area. Based on the location of existing societies, Eleanor also undertook to improve the documentation of collections from those areas in advance of future visits.
