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 encourage a creative and playful yet rigorous approach to the use of digital technologies to study and present the past. Our local and gloabal collaborations and interdisciplinary structure allow us to be responsive and make strategic, innovative interventions with high levels of social and economic impact.
