Registry of Anthropological Data Wiki

  • Digital Archive Network for Anthropology and World Heritage
  • Description: "DANA-WH is a distributed database network, comprised of multiple constituent data sets controlled by separate Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMSs) running on independent computer systems, housed at different institutions, and connected to the network. It is designed to function as a federation of distributed, interoperable databases, each with specific content of value to the study and preservation of human cultural and biological heritage." Still in the early stages of development, the Archive is presently limited to archaeological collections from NDSU (Samoan stone, shell, and coral artifacts; Fijian stone tools and ceramics; Native American (Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Tribes) stone, shell, ceramic, bone, and antler artifacts and Euro-American Fur Trade Era trade goods; the University of Minnesota at Moorhead (Archaic Projectile Points from North Dakota); HNB Garwahl University, Srinagar-Garwahl, Uttaranchal, India (Indian Pottery).
