Ithaca, NY Having been in and around a few archaeological “digs,” and experienced the painstaking amount of effort that goes into documenting bits and pieces of objects uncovered “in situ” it was a pleasure to browse data from the Fedora-powered Archaeology Data Service (ADS):
http://ads.ahds.ac.uk/
Visitors are invited to browse new additions that include analysis of recent findings, and access to special and general collections such as “England’s Rock Art.”
With a focus on preservation and access to archaeological data for teaching and learning, ADS also provides technical advice to research communities in the use of digital data: http://ads.ahds.ac.uk/project/about.html. ADS is comprised of a consortium of UK universities and is located at the University of York.
