Standard and Guide to Best Practice for Archaeological Archiving in Europe

ICOMOS Documentation Centre - Fri, 08/29/2014 - 12:07
In 2008, the Europae Archaeologiae Consilium (EAC) decided to examine the question of archiving archaeological documentation. The working group created by the EAC following that decision brought together several specialists from a number of member countries and secured the establishment of the ARCH:ES project supported by the Culture Programme 2007-2013 of the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency of the European Union.
The ARCH:ES (Archaeological Resources in Cultural Heritage – a European Standard) project ran from June 2012 till May 2014 and has published "A Standard and Guide to Best Practice in Archaeological Archiving in Europe". 
The Guide is available in 7 languages and can be downloaded for free here. For the English PDF publication, please follow this link.

For more information on the project, you can also visit the general ARCHES website. Any questions or
comments can be addressed to the ARCHES address: arches[at]e-a-c.org or to the ICAHM vice presidency for Europe: Cynthia.dunning[at]archaeoconcept.com

Venue: Room 612 Institute of Archaeology University College London
Followed by wine reception
in 609 Staff Common Room
All Welcome!

Mr. GUO Zhan, the vice president of ICOMOS, will share his rich experiences on World Heritage nomination and management. The application of the World Heritage Convention to China has resulted in many positive developments upon heritage resource management. In such a vast territory – with extreme differences of education, economic and social development, cultural diversity and natural conditions – the impacts have been diverse and complex. Numerous interesting issues have arisen, not least the perception of divergence between the western and Chinese cultural values.

ICOMOS-UK is pleased to invite you to our Summer Meeting and AGM at the Snowdonia National Park Field Studies Centre, Plas Tan-y-Bwlch, Gwynedd, north-west Wales, organised in collaboration with the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (RCAHMW).

This meeting will focus on the spectacular sites and forthcoming nomination of the Slate Industry of Northern Wales for World Heritage status. We will visit some of the vast quarries, mines and surviving settlements of what were the world’s largest slate quarries and discuss aspects of the management and conservation of such complex industrial sites and landscapes. We will include a trip on the historic Ffestiniog Railway which runs past Plas Tan-y-Bwlch, itself a former slate quarry owner’s mansion in magnificent mountainous surroundings.

On the third day delegates will be joined by members of the Pan-European Atlanterra Inter-reg Partnership from France, Portugal and Spain, who will give presentations on slate industries in other parts of Europe, to put the Welsh industry in international context, and lead a discussion of ‘valorisation’ (gaining heritage value from the industrial heritage) which is a particular interest of this international group.
