The Curatorial Project entails the cleaning, photographing, and repackaging of the Stratigraphical Museum holdings, and the creation of catalogue records in the School’s Museums and Archives Online system (using KE Software’s EMu programme) under the supervision of the project manager, Hannah Gwyther. Candidates should hold a degree in Museum Studies, Conservation, Archaeology or a related subject, and wish to gain practical experience in handling a wide range of materials and object-types dating from the Neolithic period to Late Antiquity. Interns will be required to prepare and enter catalogue data after training in the EMu system.

The BSA notes with sadness the passing of Professor Edgar Peltenburg (Edinburgh), who was a leading figure in the archaeology of Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean.  Although his work centred on Cyprus, Prof Peltenburg had a long association with the BSA: he was a School student in the 1966-67 session, an Associate student in 1987-88, and served on the School's (then) Fieldwork Committee from 2003 to 2005.  He regularly visited the BSA in Athens, where he also sent many students.  His most recent contribution was to deliver an Upper House seminar on 7 October 2011 entitled 'States of mind: Alashia and the archaeology of Late Bronze Age Cyprus'.
