A key feature of the online presence of the Heritage Futures Research Centre is the relational database which has been developed and used over the past five years in collaboration with, and funded by, a number of projects and researchers. This innovative research database provides a means of establishing relationships between places, sites, objects and people; the variety of sources which supply the details and stories about places, sites, objects and people; and the historical themes which give meaning and interpretive form to the data. It also utilises the new technologies as a means to share and communicate research with university and community based researchers.
Current projects already in the Database include:
The data from other acquitted projects, including The McLean's Corner Conservation Project, the Saumarez Store Archaeological Survey, and the Armidale K-Mart Archaeological Project, will be online.
