The Silchester Virtual Research Environment (VRE) project was funded under stage 1 of the UK Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) Virtual Research Environments programme. The project was designed to address three particular problems experienced by archaeologists in the context of the well established Silchester Insula IX Town Life Project at the University of Reading. Each of these problems related to a perceived “bottleneck” in the flow and management of data through the life of the project from excavation to publication. The first strand of the project examined possibilities for improving initial on-site data gathering, the second examined ways of providing interoperability between the various independent IADB servers, and the third aimed to foster greater engagement and closer involvement in the project amongst the large group of project co-workers.
