A Whiter Shade of Grey: A new approach to archaeological grey literature using the XML version of the TEI Guidelines.


This article arose from a dissertation submitted by the writer to the Department of Archaeology, University of York in September 2004, having studied part-time for the MSc in Archaeological Information Systems from 2002 to 2004. Many people provided information, advice and support during its preparation, without which the end result would not have been possible: sincere thanks to Professor Julian D. Richards of the University of York for his input, inspiration and guidance throughout, and to both him and Dr Gary Lock of the University of Oxford for their encouragement to publish this article; to all the staff of the ADS, Internet Archaeology and fellow AIS students 2002/3 for making the MSc course such an enjoyable and instructive experience; to Peter Cardwell and Richard Fraser of Northern Archaeological Associates for permission to use the three reports for the case study; to Dr James Cummings of the Oxford Text Archive, AHDS for answering my queries about usage of TEI P4 markup and XSLT; to Christiane Meckseper of the University of Sheffield for information and comments relating to her experience of using XML and TEI Lite for archaeological markup; to my employer, North Yorkshire County Council; to the staff of the University of York J.B. Morrell and King's Manor Libraries, and BLDSC, Boston Spa for their assistance, and to all those authors and organisations who have made information freely available online; to Dr Jon Kenny, Acting Editor of Internet Archaeology for editorial input; to my parents for unfailing support and encouragement throughout; and finally, I am indebted to the University of York and English Heritage for awarding me a bursary without which I would have neither undertaken the MSc course, nor written this article.
