WG4 Zoom

The Exploratory Workshop for WG4: Use and Re-Use of Archaeological Data was meant to be in York on 31 March – 2 April 2020, by the Archaeology Data Service, but we were able to quickly move it online…

While we were of course disappointed not to host our colleagues in person, we are incredibly grateful for the support we received from presenters and attendees alike in moving the workshop online. While it was no substitute for being in the same place together, it was still a great success and we thank everyone for participating.

All presentations and discussions were recorded. Please click on the links for each day to access the recordings, along with links to powerpoint presentations.
