The aim of this project is to demonstrate new directions in which archaeology can be taken by employing collaborative distributed computing, or "e-Science".

The project will set up an online conference or seminar facility, provisionally entitled "Ogham" (Online Group Historical and Archaeological Matrix), which will provide the excavators with real-time access to experts in diffuse disciplines, irrespective of their geographical location. The iterative research process, and flow of ideas, will therefore be greatly enhanced.
