BAJR Web Award - BAJR Host - 3rd November 2008

I will explain my pick - Lockton and Levisham

A simple no pretentious website that uses archaeology as part of helping the village. I very much like ho dynamic they are.. AND the walks give people something to do there. It is run by people from the village (with specialist help) and uses the skills people have, brings it together and makes something very pleasant.

Interesting - that's a big jump. I voted for the T5 project (when I wasn't logged on). The amount of downloadable data is whet the internet was made for.
I liked the Silchester one too, and it would have won my vote but the design changes so much from section to section that half the time I couldn't tell if I was on the same site or not.
I'm aware that style isn't everything, but consistency of design is just one less distraction. And presentation is pretty important, particularly when the material is so good.

Though it's looking pretty academic now. . .

blimey... you are not wrong... I too, think the T5 has loads on it, is well designed, and has info.. which as you say is the heart of a web deployment.

I will be going to the village one day though.. and follow the trails! (the other sites have been emailed to let them know they can vote.! So its not over yet Smile

BAJR Web Award - chiz - 5th November 2008

I thought the LP Archaeology website for their Prescott Street excavation in London was excellent and would have voted for it:

http://www.lparchaeology.com/prescot/

A great example of what could be done for any medium to large excavation given the will. It was done and updated as they dug, a pity other units in London have let their previous high standards slip in this regard.

And no I don't work for them!
