Co-Designing Digital Community Archaeologies: Experiences from the Re-Reading the British Memorial Project

Gareth Beale, Nicole Beale

The Re-Reading the British Memorial Project began as a small scale documentation project which aimed to share digital imaging expertise with community groups studying burial spaces. In response to the requirements of community groups and with their collaboration the project has now expanded to support community led research at every stage of the data lifecycle from creation to re-use. The project has also grown to incorporate an increasingly broad range of stakeholders including national organisations and university research clusters as well as community groups and volunteers. 

This presentation will discuss some of the practical issues which arise out of the collaborative development of methodologies for digital archaeology and will explore the challenges and opportunities involved in moving from being a local project based on personal relationships to a national project working remotely with multiple partners. We will critically assess different methodological directions which have been trialled by the project and will describe our current strategies for community engagement and collaboration.
