The Archaeology Data Service
The Archaeology Data Service (ADS) was established on the 1st of October 1996 as one of five discipline-based service providers within the Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS). It developed from a successful bid to the AHDS by a consortium of university Departments of Archaeology and the Council for British Archaeology, led by the University of York.
ADS supports research, learning and teaching with high quality and dependable digital resources. It preserves digital data in the long term, and promotes and disseminates a broad range of data in archaeology. It promotes good practice in the use of digital data in archaeology, provides technical advice to the research community, and supports the deployment of digital technologies.
The ADS is managed by a committee which meets bi-annually and consists of representatives of its funding bodies, representatives of user communities and the ADS internal Management Group.
