Archaeological Archive Standard 

Archaeological projects generate records that help users comprehend the results. Some projects, like excavations, are destructive processes and therefore the subsequent archive is the only evidence remaining of the archaeology encountered. It is vital, therefore, that the archive facilitates future research, particularly by those with no direct involvement in the original project. The nature of archaeological archives has changed dramatically since the early 1990s. This has resulted in changing demands on digital and physical access, long-term preservation, standardization of documentation and interoperability for searching across databases and digital publications. A number of excellent national and local standards and detailed guidance on the creation, preparation and deposition of archaeological archives have been produced by large and small organizations. The aim of this standard is to outline the common international requirements.

International Core Data Standard for Archaeological and Architectural Heritage (Chair Stephen Stead)

Pierre Choffe, tentative title: “The DOREMUS Project”

INTERNATIONAL CORE DATA STANDARD FOR ARCHAEOLOGICAL AND ARCHITECTURAL HERITAGE (CDS) The documentation of buildings, monuments and archaeological sites, plays an essential role in promoting the understanding, conservation, preventive maintenance and preservation of the archaeological and architectural heritage. Within Europe, a wide range of recording methods are employed in the compilation of inventories, often within a national framework. The compilation of these inventories may have occurred for a variety of reasons. However, some of these reasons enjoy a more widespread currency, in particular those relating to the protection of cultural heritage, and to providing some form of public access to the information held. The aims of this document are therefore threefold: • to facilitate communication between national and international bodies responsible for the recording and protection of the built and buried heritage. • to assist countries at an early stage in developing record systems for the recording and protection of the built and buried heritage. • to facilitate research utilising archaeological and architectural core data where this has an international dimension. In the form presented here, the core data standard for archaeological and architectural heritage has retained a close relationship to that prepared for historic buildings by the Council of Europe. This should be advantageous to countries able or wishing to include in one database all information relating to the man-made environment. This standard can moreover also be linked with a working standard prepared by CIDOC for archaeological objects (CIDOC 1992) and with the CIDOC minimum data standard for museum objects (CIDOC 1995) which includes archaeological objects.
