Archaeology Britain iPad App

The Archaeology Data Service and the British Library are pleased to announce the release of the Archaeology Britain iPad App.
The Archaeology Britain iPad app is a collaboration between The British Library and the ADS to create an accessible iPad app with unique and interesting content from both organisations. The app presents antiquarian drawings, paintings and maps for some of Britain's most important archaeological sites. The curated content provides unique and rarely seen perspectives for a wide range of sites from the stone age to the 20th century. The types of sites within the app are castles, churches, megaliths, settlements, and the defense of Britain. 

The app's target audience is the general public, and it is unique due to the rare content provided from the British Library archives. Much of the British Library content is not publically accessible, so the app offers a privileged view of some of the institutions most treasured collections. Additionally open content from the ADS and other sources were included to provide context to the British Library content.
