ARCHES: Archaeological Resources in Cultural Heritage: a European Standard

The ARCHES project (Archaeological Resources in Cultural Heritage, a European Standard) is a collaboration between nine different political entities, including Belgium, the Czech Republic, the German states of Baden-Wuerttemberg and Saxony- Anhalt, Iceland, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Funded by the European Union Culture Fund and supported by the Europae Archaeologiae Consilium (EAC), it aims to produce a common standard for the creation and management of archaeological discoveries and associated documentation in order to overcome the problem of present day national boundaries which did not exist in the past.

Survey of User Requirements Published

Earlier this year, ARIADNE carried out an extensive survey to identify the Network’s user requirements for kind of e-infrastructures, tools and services to be provided.

The analysis and resulting recommendations can be downloaded from the Resources page (as the full report or a short four page summary). Read more ...
