Post-survey: what to do when you have finished recording
Once fieldwork is complete:
- Organise your survey archive and make copies available for public consultation. The Researching Your Graveyard booklet (get download [2MB]) gives details of local and central archives where you can deposit a copy of your work.
- Make sure that you submit an entry to the CSA's Discovery and Excavation in Scotland describing your survey work (get download [243K]).
- Decide whether you wish to interpret the results of your survey. Ideas for research topics and examples of previous studies are found in the bibliography from Researching Your Graveyard (get download [2MB]).
- Decide if you wish to publish your work or present your findings in another way, for example online or in a CD-ROM format. Find inspiration amongst the work of the graveyard groups and preservation trusts included in the Graveyard and Gravestone Trusts and Projects section of this website.
