Over the last two days the Archaeological Computing Research Group at Southampton University hosted a 2 day ARK workshop. Participants were guided through the process of configuration and installation of ARK by members of L – P : Archaeology’s digital team. By the end of the workshop all participants had a working copy of ARK on their laptops and were configuring ARK to work with their own recording systems. We look forward to seeing where they all go with it. If you or your institution are interested in hosting a workshop please let us know.
