Minutes of Archaeological Sites WG meetings


The Archaeology Working Group met 4 times since Dresden (November 2014, January 2015, April 2015 and July 2015) to work on the International Standard for the Deposition of Archaeological Archives. We have liaised closely with the European initiatives on archives (Arches) during this process and progress is very good. 

We have also liaised with the Getty Conservation Trust software initiative, also named Arches. This has produced an open source package for the recording of Archaeological site data and follows the AWG’s Core Data Standard and the CIDOC CRM.
