Dig Walks

Enjoy a walk around Silchester’s Roman town walls or the neolithic henge at Marden, acompanied by information and commentary from the archaeologists who’ve explored them. The next best thing to visiting when the excavators are at work.

Apps for Archaeologists

Archaeopad is a collection of Apps designed for and with archaeologists. I’m an IT specialist who’s been studying for a part-time degree in  Archaeology at the University of Reading and have become fascinated with the challenges, and potential benefits, of putting my IT skills to use in the field.

Archaeologists need applications that blend a practical, robust approach with sound academic content, a suitable challenge for any designer/developer.

Skelly-Pad is designed for osteologists to record skeletons in the lab or in the trench, and has proved particularly useful for fragile human remains that need to recorded and measured in situ.

Level-Pad is a very simple App for recording and calulating levels,  designed to let you get on with the interesting stuff.

All my Apps are available on Apple and Android devices – if there’s an App you’ve always wanted but not ahd time or inclination to write – let me know!
