Given this, how do we ensure that we are best placed to play a part in this process.
Are we engaging others in a sufficient level of dialogue? Are we represented in the right places to the right extent, or are there tricks that we are missing? This short paper has done little more than state something that most of us know already. The long-term history of astronomy is a thriving field of research, and we are in a position to influence what record will survive from the last century.
The upcoming NAM in St Andrews this summer is a chance for us to start talking, collectively, about the issues involved and the key concerns, ideally developing some form of consensus on how they might best be addressed.
Science and Spectacle : The Work of Jodrell Bank in Postwar British Culture
Looking back at the questions we have raised here, there is another that stalks almost every paragraph: where's the money for all this going to come from? To this, at least, we have an answer. There is no pot of gold to cover costs, but this should not, at this stage, be a primary concern. Archives cost money: for housing, conservation, curation and the provision of various kinds of access to material.
But those with an interest in the history or in the public understanding of science routinely seek funding for research or archive development, sometimes in direct collaboration with scientists themselves. Astronomy is no different.

This is not the place in which to bemoan the current state of funding in any discipline, the health or otherwise of research councils or even government attitudes. What we can say is that applications for funding from national and other agencies are more likely to be successful if they can make reference to agendas, questions and standards identified by the discipline itself.
What needs to be done will have to be done in a cost-effective way, and hence the real need for a good strategy to set priorities and tactics. See you in St Andrews! We are very grateful for the encouragement and ideas of our colleagues, particularly Jim Bennett and David Hughes on the Astronomical Heritage Committee, and of the editor Sue Bowler.
