Three SENESCHAL workshops

March 31, 2014

The SENESCHAL research team recently marked the end of the one year AHRC funded knowledge exchange project with three workshops. These were held with project partners and interested users to demonstrate the project outcomes and discuss ways how they could be incorporated into user applications and possible future plans.

The first workshop was organised by the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) and hosted by Historic Scotland in Edinburgh. The second workshop was hosted by the Archaeology Data Service at King’s Manor in York. The third workshop was hosted by the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (RCAHMW) in Aberystwyth, a part of a meeting of the Extended National Database Technical Working Group. Each workshop provided an opportunity for active discussions – for more details and presentation see the SENESCHAL blog.

SENESCHAL project outcomes include:

  • Controlled vocabularies from English Heritage, RCAHMS, RCAHMW published online as Linked Open Data.
  • Web services for programmatic access to the vocabularies
  • Browser-based ‘widget’ user interface tools to use the vocabularies

Further work is continuing under the ARIADNE project and other possibilities are under discussion.
