There was also a discussion of future developments in the mapping of historical data.The discussion was led by a panel including: Ian Archer (Oxford), Peter Barber (British Library), Ian Gregory (Lancaster), David Green (King's College London), Tim Hitchcock (Hertfordshire), Robert Shoemaker (Sheffield) and Matthew Davies (IHR).

Organiser(s): Tim Hitchcock (Herts), Robert Shoemaker (Sheffield), Mark Merry (CMH)

This second video was taken from the roundtable discussion that ended the workshop.  It should be noted that the video quality is low on this video and some questions from the audience might be difficult to hear.  However, there is still useful and interesting discussion here which merits its inclusion here.
