Archaeological Archive Deposition
Leicestershire Museums are the repository for archaeological archives resulting from fieldwork in the county of Leicestershire (excluding the City of Leicester and Rutland).
We accept archaeological archives during four deposition windows throughout the year (February, May, August and November).
From April 2022 certain born-digital elements of archives will be archived via the Archaeology Data Service. Leicestershire’s digital archives can be viewed via the Leicestershire Museums ADS homepage.
Enquiries and accession number requests can be emailed to email@example.com. Email us to obtain copies of our latest guidelines for the deposition of archaeological archives.
