The Digital Archaeological Record (tDAR) is the digital repository of Digital Antiquity, a collaborative organization devoted to enhancing preservation and access to digital records of archaeological investigations. tDAR is a national/international digital repository for archaeological information, including databases, reports, images, and other kinds of archaeological information. This project has the dual objectives of advancing archaeologists' ability to engage in synthetic and comparative research and to maintain the long-term utility and accessibility of irreplaceable data in the face of inadequate metadata and rapidly changing technology.
