On the 15th of May the Centre for Digital Heritage will be helping to run  a workshop for anybody interested in documenting and researching a cemetery or churchyard. The event will feature talks from experienced professional researchers including Felicity Smith from Arnos Vale Cemetery and Susan Buckham from Kirkyard Consulting. Felicity will be discussing her experiences in applying for Heritage Lottery Funding and also discussing her experiences in running a community centred project. Susan will be describing her experiences working with community groups to document burial sites in Scotland.

The afternoon will be run by researchers and volunteers from the Re-Reading the British Memorial project and will show participants how to use free or low cost digital imaging techniques to document cemeteries. The project is a collaboration between the Centre for Digital Heritage and the University of Southampton and aims to spread the use of digital imaging technologies amongst community research groups. 

The event is free to attend and will be held at Kings Manor in the centre of York. If you would like to attend then contact Gareth Beale (gareth.beale@soton.ac.uk)
