Saturday 21st May 2016

We had a very enjoyable day today as we were visited by Gareth and Nicole Beale from the Centre for Digital Heritage at the University of York. They brought with them Helen Petrie, a specialist in Human-Computer interaction.  In the morning we chatted over coffee and biscuits (really nice spicy Dutch ones that Helen had brought) bringing us all up to date with the progress of the project and discussing its future development.

There are some very exciting prospects for expanding our work into new avenues, especially with regards to the publication and accessible archiving of the mass of data we are collecting. Helen offered some very interesting ideas for developing the computerisation of our work, while Gareth and Nicole seemed very keen to continue working with us on rolling out the project into new areas.

After lunch (good buffet set out by Sue!) we strolled over to the churchyard and had a look at some of the more unusual monuments. We could hardly drag Helen away!

A good day.
