3. Information Policy for Archaeology: the Swedish case

With regard to digitisation in Swedish archaeology, plans and initiatives sit at different levels. The Ministry of Culture has launched a strategy for digitisation, digital preservation, and digital access to cultural heritage information (Regeringskansliet/Kulturdepartementet 2011), the National Heritage Board (Swed. Riksantikvarieämbetet) pursues the Digital Archaeological Processes (DAP) project aiming at coordinating and making archaeological information more accessible. Regionally CABs, like those in Östergötland and Sörmland, have come together in regional initiatives (e.g. comprehensive digitisation of records from the 1960s onwards prior to the East Link railroad project, Löwenborg 2014).
