Artifact Salvage and Recovery Workshop

Posted on: September 1st, 2015 by Jessica Unger | Miami, FL

Staff of Florida museums, archives, zoos, library special collections, historic sites, and archaeology collections, are invited to the free Florida C2C Developing Emergency Plans: Artifact Salvage and Recovery Workshop. Registration closes on September 25, 2015!


Learn salvage and recovery procedures for all types of objects, learn what types of supplies you should purchase and hear case studies from other institutions on October 2. Go home with clear instructions on how to develop your museum’s response. Come back on December 11 to refine it with peers, and participate in a hands-on artifact salvage activity to enhance your learning.


Both workshops are held in 3 different cities so no one has to travel far and so you can network with peers in your region:

  • Frost Art Museum, FIU – Miami
  • Florida Museum of Natural History, UF – Gainesville
  • Ringling Museum of Art, FSU – Sarasota


Deadline for Registration: September 25, 2015

Cost: Free
