Preserving the Franktown and Kenton Caves Organic Archaeological Collections at the Museum of Anthropology

Hiring a preservation consultant to conduct a training workshop and to assist staff at the Museum of Anthropology in rehousing 670 rare and fragile organic archaeological objects from two cave sites in Colorado, dating 6000 BCE-CE 1000. Funding also supports the purchase of museum quality cabinetry to house these artifacts.

The University of Denver Museum of Anthropology wishes to secure funding to rehouse 640 objects from the Franktown Cave and Kenton Caves organic archaeological collections by: 1) hiring an objects conservator to conduct a mount making workshop for graduate level Museum Studies students and supervise collections rehousing; 2) updating the objects' current storage system with a new metal museum quality cabinet; and 3) purchasing supplies for customized storage mounts.
