Research project VISEAD builds on the established SEAD platform by adding support for cutting edge methods in archaeological science. The project will facilitate the use of multidisciplinary archaeological research data by a broad range of users.
VISEAD is a collaborative venture uniting four archaeological research laboratories with a professional development team and stakeholders, including Västerbotten County Administrative Board (LST) and consultants. We will enter new data types into to SEAD’s current catalogue including insects, plants, pollen, soil chemistry and more. VISEAD will be a resource for a broad spectrum of research fields from archaeology and geology to health, conservation and heritage studies. It will enable the interdisciplinary study of long-term aspects of global challenges at an unprecedented scale and complexity.
