Project summary

A collaborative project involving the Fitzwilliam Museum and a network of European museums housing important Ancient World collections. The project- and subsequent publication of an edited volume- seeks to contribute to the advancement of public archaeology as a theoretical discipline as well as a practice within Museums.   This is being achieved by shedding light to a vast range of current practices across important European Museums and institutions and by adding nuance to our understanding of the ever-evolving theoretical discourses and debates of public archaeology.


Major output

In preparation: Material Cultures in Public Engagement: Re-inventing Public Archaeology within Museum collections. (Book in preparation, expected December 2017).
