Putting flesh on the bones: cataloguing and digitising the Calvin Wells Archive


  • University of Bradford

Project summary

Calvin Wells is regarded to be the founding father of palaeopathology in the UK. His archive comprises books, offprints, notebooks, correspondence, poems, photographs, negatives, slides, radiographs, microfilms and video cassettes relating to the medical humanities and palaeopathology. The project aims to fully catalogue and conserve the material and digitise images for preservation. The final archive will be deposited with Special Collections at the JB Priestley Library, University of Bradford, allowing researchers to access and interrogate it easily.
