the paper provides discourse considering aspects of European identity and projects funded by European money; the importance of technical and human networking to interoperability; dealing with language; spatial issues; describing data, and the role of metadata; digitisation of historic data; preservation and publication. The paper sets out to draw together the pathways to be followed in enabling archaeology and heritage management in Europe to be served by a suitable network and information infrastructure

article reflecting the participation of the Institute of Archaeology, Iceland, in the actions of the ARENA project. In particular the article highlights issues along the pathway to interoperability that the Institute found most important in its participation; that is communication and dissemination of information to the public. The author argues that archiving material is not enough, the material to be archived must demonstrate its value, through its diversity and as a commentator on archaeological practice across Europe, and that access to archives more than anything else imbues them with value. The archives prepared as part of the ARENA project highlighted a number of problems and tensions that are considered here, they also demonstrated the dissemination advantages of digital publication. The preparation of archives for preservation purposes is also considered, in particular the possibilities explored in Iceland for representing old data transformed into new data

the article reflects the participation of the Museum Project, Norway in the actions of the ARENA project. In particular the article highlights issues along the pathway to interoperability that the Museum Project found most important in its participation; that is the digitisation of archaeological records and the connection of information from these resources. The article includes the problems encountered due to the fact that the data from the various collections often do not fit together, at least not without extensive human interaction. The article describes in particular the presentation of digital data from selected locations in Norway, the settlements at Hegge and Egge. A solution to linking data is suggested using an event based (CIDOC CRM) model

with sites and monuments data from six nations available on the ARENA project for interoperable search, insight has been gained into the technical and other difficulties involved, indicating the next logical steps. Drawing on a discussion of the status of Internet use within the sector of cultural heritage in Denmark, a number of perspectives for using the Internet for cultural heritage management and information dissemination are drawn up. Denmark is offered as an example
