Fieldwork in completed in six steps

Each site report offers a basic site description, and most importantly the Romanesque features with photographs and captions.  Here is the breakdown of how to approach your fieldwork in six stages.


stage 1: Site list.  This may already have been prepared, but if not the fieldworker should get a list of sites from the Project Coordinator.

stage 2: Fieldwork (taking photos, notes, some measurements & image caption list)

stage 3: Note the basic site details: general description, dedication, diocese and county information

stage 4: Upload the material to the report: general description, dedication, diocese and county information, and all Romanesque features with images & descriptions

stage 5: Add history & bibliography

stage 6: Add Comments


The minimum amount of material for a complete site that can go live on the crsbi website is stage 4.  Please prioritise this work for your sites.
