Ron Baxter gave an introductory presentation and showed how best to use the new system. We uploaded new reports, discovered how to delete mistakes, and move around our images on the online form. The fieldworkers had a hands-on session to try uploading their material and ask questions of the CRSBI team. They did very well.
Thank you to Christie's Education for the use of the computer lab and lecture theatre.
Regular users of our website will realise that our website has been completely redeveloped, thanks to the support of English Heritage and the technical expertise of the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College. The new website became available in early 2014. The changes not only solved the problems we had with 'missing' site reports from a technical glitch, but vastly improved our search capacity, giving users many more ways to find what they need. The update also made it easier for us to add site reports and photographs, so that the website can develop more quickly. We hope you have found these changes helpful.
I have now added the current UAs for Wales and counties and UAs for England. Have fun using them!
Thanks to useful input from Jim King and Richard Fawcett we have now added the current Scottish council areas to the online form, so these can be used as an alternative to the traditional counties as the basis for searches etc.
