Mapping material culture: exploring the interface between museum artefacts and their geographical context

2010

Abstract

This paper describes the results of an exploratory project undertaken by National Museums Scotland and the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland to enhance their respective databases through sharing information relating to their respective areas of expertise. The resulting MAGI (Museum Artefact Geographical Interface) project highlighted the huge potential for creating an online resource to re-connect objects in museum collections with the locations of their discovery.
