Nathalie Cohen and Courtney Nimura (Thames Discovery Programme)
In 2010, the Thames Discovery Programme website, designed and hosted by L – P : Archaeology, won the British Archaeological Award for ‘Best Representation of Archaeology in the Media’. This short presentation will examine the development of the project website, discuss the evaluation of the website and the volunteers’ experience (undertaken at the end of the Heritage Lottery Funded phase of the project by Nicola Bell), and examine our use of social media, including Facebook and Twitter. The paper will also discuss the members only FROG Network (which uses NING) and outline possible directions for future development of this resource and others.
