Hi list,

I just came across this:

The Atlas of Hillforts Project has just been awarded £950,000 from the  
Arts and Humanities Research Council to try and remedy this situation. The  
Project will collect, collate and present data on hillforts across the UK  
and Ireland providing, for the first time, an integrated resource to serve  
research into this important monument type. It will run for four years  
 from September 1st 2012 and has Researchers and PhD students based in both  
Oxford (responsible for England and Wales) and Edinburgh (responsible for  
Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland).

Would there be anyone on the list interested in this?  Also, maybe  
touching base with them and seeing if the information collected could be  
used with OSM?  I personally would be interested in mapping hill forts in  
my area.
