The digitization of the plans of the archeology collection begins

The plans for the archaeological interventions carried out by the Museum’s archeology department between the 1970s and 2001 have been being scanned at the Museum since last week.

In a second phase, once these documents have been scanned, they will be digitized so that they can be kept in optimal conditions, used in future research or consulted on the web.

Much work remains to be done to digitize the entire archaeological planimetry collection, which consists of more than 1,000 plants and sections, drawn on tracing paper.

Since 2001, all interventions have been documented in digital suport.
