Unit 3 Review: The Keep

We took a trip to the Keep, where many West Sussex artifacts are kept and put into storage rooms. We first got to look at glass negatives and how to handle them as they very delicate. We also learnt techniques of how to clean maps and old papers by using rubbers by taking off the old and making it new just by using an eraser. We also went onto the Keeps website to search for things that could be kept at the keep. We found old papers and records of deaths at the camp. No deaths of war but by accident. Some soldiers were drunk and fell and hit their heads or by falling off railings. The write up and the witnesses of the accidents were very interesting to read.

To find out how everything happened and how they documented back 100 years ago.

After we looked at the death records we went up into the cold storage rooms. We learnt the rooms had high security and also it was freezing, that is to keep the artifacts and records in tact.
