Dear all,
Apologies for cross posting. Please see below information about the release of a new thesaurus dealing with archaeological event types. Please note the definition of an event as defined in the introduction (see http://thesaurus.english-heritage.org.uk/01_introduction.pdf)  is more restrictive than that given in the CRM!

Importance: High

Dear colleagues,

Apologies for cross posting.

You may be interested to know that English Heritage's Data Standards Unit recently completed a thesaurus of archaeological and architectural fieldwork types and techniques as a development of the ALGAO event type wordlist.  The thesaurus will allow users to identify and apply standardized indexing to a wide range of investigative activities that are undertaken by the heritage community, as well as assisting in the retrieval and exchange of data, please see attached leaflet.

We are pleased to announce that the first edition of the Event Types Thesaurus is now available in .csv format for building into databases, if you would like a copy in this format please feel free to contact me off list; HBSMR users will receive the thesaurus as part of our next update.  Our web pages have now been updated at http://thesaurus.english-heritage.org.uk<http://thesaurus.english-heritage.org.uk/> where users can browse the thesaurus online and download pdf versions of the introduction and appendices.
Once again I would like to thank all those who kindly gave their time to comment on and participate in the review of the thesaurus during its construction.
Kind regards
