Explore by Map
The map provides a more traditional view of the data and data sources. Exploring the map provides a visual overview of where data exists

number of points that they contain.
Clicking on a point or a region will show data collected in the info box on the right.

Archaeologists draw on a wide variety of data to investigate any topic. The concept maps are intended to aid in the
process of gathering together all the specialist data that may be relevant to a topic. They point first
to linked topics, and then to the available data sources and key indicators that would be
relevant. The aim is to make specialists more aware of the most relevant
aspects of one another?s data to shared research questions, and to tease out how these data map together, not at
the level of integrating columns or fields in a database, but at the level of bringing together different approaches
to a topic and pointing to key data sources.
Start with a central idea, e.g. storage, branching out to different types of information
that might inform on storage. For example, from storage we might branch out to consumable goods, and from consumable goods
