Abstract

This paper presents a public archaeology project that aims to train community groups to use computational photography techniques for the recording and dissemination of church gravestones and memorials. The project implements open approaches into its use of technology and also methodological design. The manner by which open principles were engaged by the project is described. The paper ends with an outline of plans for future work, to include crowdsourcing and open access publication in pursuit of these objectives.
