Number of Participants / Visitors / Audience: 

Steve Burrow and Mared Maggs from St Fagans National History Museum visited Foteviken Museum on 28 and 29 June 2012 to discuss progress on Work Package 2: Management of Museums.

In a productive meeting, the scope of Work Package 2 was discussed in detail and plans were made for its future development, focusing in particular on progress with the development of the September 2012 conference. Björn Jakobsen, Director of Foteviken, took the opportunity to highlight the online event management tool,, which contained many features which could be tailored to Work Package 2, as well as being an impressive resource in its own right.

With the business meeting concluded, Björn also showed the visitors around his museum which was in the midst of one of its main summer events, the Viking Festival. The possibility of evaluating the Festival as part of Work Package 2 was considered throughout the meeting.
