Jane Pettitt and Emily Shorter
Emily and Jane are Collection Assistants at the Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology in Cambridge. They are both members of the the Stores Move team. The project (2020-2025) aims to move over 250,000 objects from the current off-site stores to the new Centre for Material Culture. Here, they will be safely housed in the historic Cambridge Nuclear Bunker. They update catalogue descriptions and other documentation, restore mistaken identities, photograph each object, and pack them all safely for transport. Hundreds of thousands of objects will be,thereafter, both physically and digitally accessible, many of them for the first time.
