Donations and Bequests
The artefacts and artworks housed at The Collection are the result of the generosity of many people stretching back for more than a century. The Collection is grateful to all the people who have donated and bequeathed material to us over the years.
The Collection is always seeking to expand its collections in a strategic and focussed manner, and is always happy to discuss new offers of donations and bequests.
Our ability to accept new objects and artworks into the collections is guided by our 'Collections Development Strategy'. If you have an object or artwork that you would like to consider donating, bequeathing or selling to The Collection, then please contact us.
The Collection is the repository for Lincolnshire’s archaeological project archives. If you have an enquiry regarding professional or community archaeological fieldwork, please contact us. Our 'Archaeological Archives Deposition Guidelines' form part of the Lincolnshire Archaeological Handbook, and set out our process and requirements for archaeological project archives.
