Post-AGM Talk
After the AGM Members are invited to stay for Looking back and moving forward: a Wealth of Knowledge Project update, by Wil Partridge, Research Officer: Collections

Wil, previously Finds Liaison Officer for Wiltshire, has for almost two years been working as Research Officer for the Wiltshire Museum. He is responsible for undertaking the ACE-funded A Wealth of Knowledge project, which aims to review 10-years’ worth of archaeological research into the collections and update the Museum’s records with this new information. This initial phase of the project has now been completed, and the Museum is able to describe in great detail exactly how its collections have been used. With this information in hand, it is now time to look forward, to identify future research priorities and to create the systems which will make feeding this information back into the collections more efficient.
