During the event a workshop on BRICKS and archaelogy will take place:

The BRICKS Project (Building Resources for Integrated Cultural Knowledge Services) is an EU funded project that is researching and implementing open source software solutions for sharing digital cultural resources in digital library applications. The project consortium includes cultural heritage institutions, research organisations, technological providers, and other players in the field of digital libraries services. This workshop will look at work that has taken place during the project to develop two archaeological applications that demonstrate different aspects of the BRICKS technology. The ‘Fortuna Viviva’ of Pompeii is a digital library application to enable curators, researchers and students to work with historical archives for the site using GIS and other tools to create annotated virtual tours and other materials. The second application exploits the CIDOC CRM to create a resource for students and members of the public to identify and learn about coins found in the UK. The workshop will provide an introduction to BRICKs technology and its use, the integration of archaeological contents into the BRICKS framework, metadata management and ontologies and also demonstrations of the applications. The workshop will last for 6 hours. The audience should be familiar with the CIDOC CRM and with Dublin Core Metadata. The maximum number of participants is 20.

Coordination: MSc Kate Fernie,
