Accessing Archaeology Online Workshop 1

Accessing Archaeology Online Workshop 1

The Archaeology Audience Network want to find out more about how the public are, or perhaps aren't, accessing archaeological information online and we would like to invite you to the first of three workshops to share your experiences.

The first workshop will take place on Saturday 20 May and will focus on how you currently do, or don't, access archaeology data online and how you use it.

The second session will be a hands-on workshop looking at how to use the ADS website and search their archives. The final workshop will draw on what we've learnt in the two previous sessions, and we'll be discussing how we can make information held by ADS, Historic Environment Records and other archaeology archives more accessible for all.

The details

Workshop 1 will be held in person on Saturday 20 May from 10am to 12.30pm.

Refreshments will be provided.

The workshop will be held at King's Manor in York city centre. King's Manor is an accessible venue and is just a short distance from York train station or easily reached via the Park&Ride. The AAN will cover the cost of travel for participants and will also reimburse attendees for their time with vouchers.

Workshops 2 and 3 will be held online in the early autumn and further information and details of how to sign up will be shared soon.

Participants are welcome to join us for one, two or all three of the workshops.
