About A2SN

The Archives and Artefacts Study Network, (A2SN) is an informal group, supported by the HMRS,  the Postal History Society and the British Transport Police History Group that seeks to explore and expand co-operation between volunteer-led societies, independent scholars, archivists, academics and museum professionals working in the heritage and business history fields.

The Archives and Artefacts Study Network provides friendly workshops and conferences where people can meet; extending their thinking and learning by talking to, and working with others whom, in the normal course of pursuing their occupation or their hobby, they might not meet. A2SN meetings aim to prompt an awareness of what various groups and individuals are doing and to start a dialogue which can lead to co-operation in preserving and using collections of all sorts. Public engagement with the past and its relevance to the future is a key theme.
