Artefact: Archaeological Object Database

ArcaheObject Splash ScreenArtefact™ is a database designed to help archaeologists and curators classify and record all the information that is known about the objects they are studying and keeping.


This data may be dates, textual descriptions, official names, colloquial names, images, other media files, lists of books and journals and locations associated with the objects - the find spot, where it was produced and where it is currently stored.


Artefact™ has inbuilt methods for locations to be geo coded and to produce KML and KMZ files which can then be viewed in Google Earth, Arc GIS and Arc Explorer - or any other GIS system that can read this format. And you can import (and export) using a variety of formats including MIDAS xml.

The object properties managed enables you to create any number of groups of properties so it is easy to record materials used, techniques, styles ... well how many areas you create is up to you.
