Database

ArchLab uses the Strategic Environmental Archaeology Database (SEAD) for storage and dissemination of research results and raw data. Data are currently available from MAL, with data from AFL and LWD (see Labs) being ingested over time. Legacy data from the now closed National Laboratory for Ceramics Research (KFL) in Lund is also included. A considerable expansion of the data for dendrochronology and wood anatomy is currently underway in the ‘Old wood in a New Light’ project headed by Lund.

SEAD provides open access to archaeological science data created by the consortium partners or provided from other sources, including the international fossil insect database BugsCEP. SEAD is also part of the Swedish National Infrastructure for Digital Archaeology (SweDigArch), which will provide more advanced facilities for analysing the data an linking it with other types of archaeological data.
