Understanding site records

There is a wealth of information on a site record. To help we have created a glossary of our vocabulary used on this website. 

  1. The classification, name(s) and ID Number of a site.
  2. The location of the site.
  3. Digital images we hold of the site.
  4. Related collection records pulled from other parts of our catalogue.
  5. Archaeological and architectural notes collected during our survey and recording work.
  6. Bibliographic references relating to a site.
  7. You can add to our records by contributing your own text and images. Register for a MyCanmore account to get started.
