The work at the Homeland Museum of Biograd started immediately.  The quality and diversity of the artifacts raised in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1990s makes it worth revisiting the collection and attempting to reconstruct its history, provenience, and destiny.

A new and comprehensive database is being built, with every artifact in the museum collection being photographed, assessing their quality and condition, conserved, and storing them in new boxes and trays.  Božidar Vilhar, the well-known conservator of the Archaeological Museum of Zadar had conserved a part of the collection, but after almost five decades, some require re-conservation treatment and thousands of artifacts were just dried and stored with no special treatment, and need to be inventoried, cleaned, stabilized, and conserved.
