Second VERA Winter Workshop 96 Wednesday 3rd December 2008 "Digital
field recording and publication in archaeology" 

The VERA project invites you to a workshop entitled "Digital field
recording and publication in archaeology" to be held in the Archaeology
Department of the University of Reading on Wednesday the 3rd of December
2008. 

The JISC funded Virtual Research Environment for Archaeology (VERA)
project (http://vera.rdg.ac.uk) plans to create a suitable Web portal
that provides enhanced tools to efficiently document archaeological
excavation and its associated finds for the user community. VERA aims to
develop utilities that help encapsulate the working practices of current
research archaeologists unfamiliar with virtual research environments. 

The aim of this second workshop is to show what the project has achieved
so far, having now had two seasons of excavation at Silchester to test
the development of the system, and to discuss more broadly the future of
Virtual Research Environments and Archaeology. The day will begin at
11am with talks finishing at around 4:30pm. 

More details, including a timetable and directions to the university,
can be found on the VERA website at:
http://vera.rdg.ac.uk/events/winter_workshop_2.php 

Places are limited and priority will be given to all current IADB users,
but there will also be places for other archaeologists interested in the
VERA project, so please get in touch by the 26th November if you are
interested! 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
Emma Jane O'Riordan
