So you’re intrigued by the discoveries at Earth Trust? Want to see the data for yourself?
All the evidence we dig up is immediately uploaded to Digital Dig Team. Whether you want to use it for your own research, or just check whether you agree or disagree with our conclusions in the site report, our extremely brief and incredibly useful guide will help you get started.
Ok, so you’ve had fun watching the dig, but now you want to see the detail. Go to Dig Records (top right).
The first thing you’ll see are the finds. From coins and jewelry to combs and cooking pots, you can click on any object to find out more and even see a 3D model.
Of course, archaeology isn’t just about artefacts – it’s about features too. That means ditches, post holes, rubbish pits. Oh, and there are plans, sections and soil samples too! Use the row of buttons to look through the different types of records we keep. To see where everything was found, the trench icon collects all these different strands together, allowing you to explore the data through a 3D model of the trench itself.
All this data is open access. That means you can use it to do your own research. To download any of the data, go to ‘advanced search’, filter the data you want and click the CSV download button.
