The introduction of new photometric techniques for faint objects has tremendously increased our understanding of the MC clusters, especially at the old end of the age spectrum. Many of the well-studied clusters of the past have gone through several transformations, starting as true globulars in 1960, becoming intermediate-age objects in the 1970's, but now returning to the true globular classification in the 1980's. LW 868 is an example of a cluster with such a history. Better photometric accuracy is also greatly improving our understanding of younger clusters, allowing detailed comparisons with theoretical evolutionary models, and a more reliable determination of the age-abundance relationship. The dynamical history of MC clusters can also be examined from the new data. The cluster formation rate, as well as the destruction rate, can be reconstructed from modern, deep cluster surveys.
