This year, Tom De Cort seriously improved our computer network and server system so that all information is downloaded onto a single computer. In close collaboration with archaeologists Nathalie Kellens and Veerle Lauwers, and the depot manager Frank Carpentier, the computer scientists Tom De Cort and Erwin Nies are also developing new systems and approaches to avoid human mistakes while entering the thousands of objects that come into the database each season.

Ann Bessemans, Lien Liekens, and Maarten Van Mechelen, three illustrators from the Provincial High School Limburg, Belgium, joined our group this week. They will draw a selection of ceramics, glass, metal, and bone or other fragments of objects.
