Archaeological research generates large amounts of valuable information. Digital tools provide powerful means by which these datasets can be stored and managed efficiently. These maximise the knowledge that can be gained and allow the data to be disseminated to the widest possible audience.
OA is a leader in this rapidly evolving field, both in existing practices and the development of new tools, methods and outputs. Digital techniques are developing at an incredible pace. Having the expertise to manage these new resources adds value to our heritage research and enables us to provide a more efficient service.
We are committed to improving access to our data and heritage resources. OA staff are members of the newly formed ICOMOS UK digital technology committee, where we share our knowledge with leaders in the sector.
