this is really great :-) Just a couple of questions:
- is this specific to Archaeology? If so the domain looks too generic
to me. If not, this is an enormous (but worthwhile?) task.
- Re Digital Humanities specifically, Stuart Dunn is keen to do
something very similar with the data from the Methods Network
programme (http://methodsnetwork.ac.uk/ although the server seems to
be down at the moment). You should get in touch with him if you aren;t
already. Likewise, the ESF-funded NediMAH programme is planning to
create very similar content which clearly needs to be integrated in
some way (preferably w/o copy paste). Any thoughts on how we might
work that? I suppose the big question here is , how do we make these
initiatives (and others) play well together rather than build
centralised portals? The good news is that they're all open data
though (I think) so at least we shouldn't have to struggle too hard
over licensing issues.

I have initially populated it with four python scripts to undertake different vegetation analyses from Remote Sensing data (an ecological domain). Although these do have relevance for archaeology.
