The Matrix

The Matrix


The Matrix is an AHRC funded Leadership Fellow project (2020-2022) led by Keith May (Historic England), who is a Hypermedia Research Group Visiting Research Fellow, in collaboration with the University of York. It investigates how digital data from archaeological excavations can be more consistently recorded, analysed, disseminated and archived in a way that is Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-useable (FAIR). In particular, the work addresses the lack of standardised approaches to the digital archiving and reuse of archaeological data stratigraphic and phasing data. The Hypermedia Research Group (Ceri Binding) is responsible for developing an exploratory Phasing Analysis tool taking advantage of previous research collaborations (STAR, SENESCHAL) with Keith May and current semantic approaches.
