We were delighted to find that some of Wessex Archaeology's work under the auspices of our Framework Archaeology joint venture with our colleagues at Oxford Archaeology has been short-listed for the British Archaeological Awards which are to be held at The British Museum on 10 November 2008.
The work is the Heathrow Terminal 5 excavation and publication, submitted in the Best Archaeological Project category, and its supporting publication data and geographic informations systems software (Framework FreeViewer) submitted in the Best Archaeological Innovation category.
You can find out more about the excavations at T5 from the project web site
You can try out the Framework FreeViewer for yourself by downloading it and the Perry Oaks excavations data . You can also access the supporting documentation and more detailed information on the downloads.
Since early 2008, a second set of excavations data for use in the Framework FreeViewer has been available. This covers the Framework Archaeology excavations at Stansted airport between the years 2000 to 2004.
