Course Description

What's it about? Through a series of presentations, practical sessions, and group discussions, this course will explore the importance of digital preservation for the long term safety of archaeological data and provide practical guidance on how to prepare, curate, deposit and access digital data. We will also provide guidance on data publishing online and introduce Linked Open Data for archaeology. The course is aimed primarily at archaeology data creators and data curators operating in national agency and local authority heritage environments. However this course will also be of benefit to professionals working in commercial, independent and research environments and to community groups utilising and creating archaeological data. It will be of particular interest to those who maintain large data sets and need to efficiently manage, effectively preserve, and provide access to, their data for the future.
