A Directory of Archives useful for history of Archaeology Research.
The Historic Environment Image Resource (HEIR) project at the School of Archaeology, University of Oxford is digitising historic lantern slides, dating from the late 19th to mid-20th centuries, in various collections in the University. Photographs cover a wide geographical area. An app developed in conjunction with the digitisation project enables users to upload their own current photographs of the sites represented in the lantern slides, and help HEIR archivists to create keywords for the digitised images.

One of a large number of local archaeological societies in the United Kingdom, the Glasgow Archaeological Society was established in 1856 on the foundation of an earlier Society established over a decade earlier. Its aims were to promote and research the archaeology of the city of Glasgow and the West of Scotland. The GAS's association with the University of Glasgow began in 1906, and with the instigation of the Dalrymple Fund many important archaeologists were brought to Glasgow to deliver public lectures on European Archaeology.
Scope of Collection:
minutes, letters, reports, copies of Society Transactions and newsletters (1856-2006)
Further details on the material available in the GAS archive can be found via Archives Hub here.
