One Big Step to Sustainable Archaeology Infomatics

Hey all,

when we are at SA next week, do take a moment to admire our nicely labelled boxes... as you can see from SA's facebook post, this is a critical milestone allowing us to manage collections coming in and moving a step closer to integration of our informational platform. There is a reason Alex looks happy... it took a lot of work and a lot of hair pulling to make this happen (really, 3 years and counting!). Believe me when I say databases and automation is no straight forward task... and has been a huge challenge to make it otherwise for disciplines like archaeology that don't have internally a critical mass of expertise to draw on.
