The Centre for Digital Heritage (CDH) was established in 2012 to provide a focus for researchers from across the University of York with an interest in all fields of digital heritage, including data management, analysis and visualisation.
It brings together staff from the Departments of Archaeology, Computer Science, Electronics, History, Music, Sociology and Theatre, Film, Television and Interactive Media, as well as the Humanities Research Centre and the Borthwick Institute for Archives.
We play a leading role in exploring the application of digital technologies to the study of the past. Our collaborative and interdisciplinary structure enables us to conduct research which is methodologically and technologically innovative and which achieves high levels of social and economic impact.
