Event description

Description

Archaeologists and building historians have been investigating sites and remains in Europe for more than 200 years. Digital collections now in Europeana reveal hidden histories from both cities and countryside often telling stories of communities who are not otherwise commemorated. The content illustrates how the practice of archaeology changed – particularly between the first half of the 20th century and now. Heritage is not only about conserving the past but also shaping the future. Monuments and historic buildings bring economic, educational and community benefits – drawing tourists, educating students and offering citizens opportunities to use cutting edge technologies such as 3D and GIS. Archaeology can also raise awareness of current issues such as climate change.

For this year’s annual CARARE meeting we have taken as our theme past, present and future directions. We invite you to join us in discussing these themes. This workshop will explore how digital content for the archaeological and architectural heritage is being made available to users of Europeana. Speakers will present case studies, methods, practices, the challenges that they faced and their results. One of the aims of the workshop is to bring together cultural heritage professionals, scholars, specialists and students to share experiences and to discuss possible future developments.
