A key task of the Transatlantic Archaeology Gateway project was an invitational workshop for faunal remains specialists in order to present to them a proposed joint US-UK faunal remains description schema that will allow the cross-searching of faunal remains databases held on either side of the Atlantic. The objective of the workshop was to both garner feedback on the proposed schema and to build a consensus amongst the specialist community that this approach offers potential for the enhanced discovery analysis of faunal remains records.

In the UK the workshop was coordinated by Catherine Hardman with the assistance of the prominent faunal remains specialist Jane Richardson acting as consultant. It was held in the King's Manor York on the 10th March 2010. The workshop programme, some presentations and list of participants are be available below.
