Just a wee update to say our archive will be available on the ADS in the New Year.

The ACCORD archive is now with the Archaeology Data Service (, where it is currently getting accessioned so that the data will be available for all to use freely under a Creative Commons License. We are the first project of its kind in Scotland to create such a varied resource of 3D digital data of all types of heritage (from rock-art to rock-climbs) chosen, designed and made by communities themselves. These models, enriched with statements of social significance, are the legacy of ACCORD.

So we wanted to say a huge thank you to all who participated in ACCORD, contributed to the blog, and passed on knowledge and skills to others- we hope that the conversation continues. If you are active in using these technologies and would like to contribute something to our blog in the future we will keep it open for business. Please send along text, media and images to The project was made possible with funding from the “Digital Transformations in Community Research Co-Production” programme, via the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Thanks also to our partners at Archaeology Scotland, the Royal Commission for Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland, the department of Archaeology at the University of Manchester and our colleagues at the Digital Design Studio, Glasgow School of Art.

Signing off for now,

Dr Stuart Jeffrey (Digital Design Studio, Glasgow School of Art)

Dr Alex Hale (Royal Commission for Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland/ now Historic Environment Scotland)

Professor Siân Jones (of Archaeology and Heritage Studies, University of Manchester)

Cara Jones (Archaeology Scotland)
