It is axiomatic that archaeologists will expand their research to encompass the computing resources available to them and thus the use of larger and larger datasets. These often take the form of seismic, maritime and satellite surveys using proprietary equipment and software. That there might be problems preserving and reusing this data led to the commissioning of the “Big Data” project. This paper summarises the outcomes as presented in the project’s final report.
