Archaeology and Architecture in Europeana, workshop by CARARE & Europeana

Share

This two-day workshop is jointly hosted by CARARE and Europeana at the University of Leiden, Faculty of Archaeology.  The theme of the workshop is Archaeology and Architecture in Europeana.

The physical remains of Europe’s rich heritage are all around us. The historic houses we live and work in, the places we go to worship, places we visit to explore tombs, earthworks, architectural ruins or monuments to industries past, the museums we visit, the shape of our landscape and the ground beneath our feet.

Digital technologies are widely used to capture the heritage for conservation and research, for analysis, to support learning and tourism, and for enjoyment.  This workshop will explore how digital content for the archaeological and architectural heritage can be made available to users of Europeana, experiences and best practices, and potential re-uses of the content for education, tourism, and researchers.

The workshop is free to attend, registration is through Eventbrite HERE.
