At the 100 Minories project, we collect all of our data using both a paper recording system and also an online database. For this we use the Archaeological Recording Kit (ARK). ARK is a web-based ‘toolkit’ for the collection, storage and dissemination of archaeological data. It includes data-editing, data-creation, data-viewing and data-sharing tools, all of which are delivered using a web-based front-end. What this means is that when we record things on site (buildings, pits, postholes, etc.) they are put directly into the ARK (using iPads on site) – and can immediately be seen via the web by anyone who is interested in following along with the project.
