Star Carr Archives Project



The main emphasis of this study has been the location of the material excavated by Clark, 1949-1951 because that constitutes the majority of the archive. However, an attempt has also been made to locate the archives generated by John Moore (1948 and 1951) and those generated by the Vale of Pickering Research Trust (1985 and 1989), published in Mellars and Dark (1998).

The outcomes of the project aimed:

To produce copies of catalogues and finding aids of museums and universities holding finds, artefacts and archives relating to the site;
To produce lists of contacts at each institution and clear instructions as to how future researchers can access the material;
To assess how/when/where Star Carr material has been exhibited as well as stored and researched;
To examine what can be deduced about finds conservation (in order to assess whether further dating can be carried out);
To suggest how the site may be imaginatively interpreted for a range of users, using internet technology;
To produce recommendations as to the future distribution of finds and archives to facilitate research access.
