Advising on the curation, storage and display of recently excavated archaeological material for the Trang An Landscape Complex UNESCO World Heritage Site in Vietnam.
In November 2019, Nigel Larkin spent ten days at the Trang An Landscape Complex UNESCO World Heritage Site
to assess important archaeological material that had been unearthed on fieldwork in the previous few years and to provide advice in regards
to building a suitable and sustainable new facility in which the material could be stored, researched and displayed.
He produced a fully referenced 36-page report suggesting phases of development leading up to the building of the new museum, including
applying the ‘Ten Agents of Deterioration’ model to the proposed new museum, plus suggested conventions for numbering and labelling specimens and
advised on disaster planning and futureproofing the museum.
Ryan Rabett of Queens University Belfast, who was in charge of the archaeology project over many years,
said "The document was great and a huge
contribution to the season's output. Incidentally, I passed your museum document by a senior colleague in IUCN
who has been very closely involved in the development and post-inscription of the World Heritage Site.
He felt it was one of the best (if not the best) of its kind he'd seen".
