54. Arxiu Arqueològic de Barcelona
The Archaeological Archive is the museum’s facility for treating, conserving and studying artefacts exhumed from archaeological excavations conducted in Barcelona. Its purpose is to ensure they are conserved and managed by arranging spaces and uses in a twin-track approach.
The first meets the need for archaeologists and other specialists to do preparatory work prior to the final storage of the materials. The second is based on the idea of a protective building which delivers appropriate storage conditions for the material, ensures it is permanently connected with the archaeological documentation and makes viewing, studying and publicising it easier.
