The evidence search screen is a very powerful search screen
constructed in a special way so that it combines find types,
evidence types, and find materials. If you are using the evidence
type for searching, you may find that certain types are listed
more than once. This is because the evidence thesaurus contains
all our terms for find types, evidence types, and find materials,
many of which are duplicated. However, if you look at the
highest level terms in the thesaurus you can see which thesaurus
you are using. We are still working on this function so please
be patient when using this search.
See below for the options that are available for you on this
If you know what type of evidence you are
looking for, then you can type the name of it into the first box
labelled "Find Me", and click on the "Find Type" button. Once you
have done this, you will be presented with a list of evidence types
that are found in the system. If the one that you wanted appears
in the list, then click on it and perform the search.
If you would prefer to browse the list of evidence types that are
available in the system, then click on the "Browse Types" button.
You will be presented with a hierarchical set of evidence types
from which you can select the evidence type that you are interested
If you know the range of dates of monuments that you are interested
in, then use the input boxes marked "from" and "to". However if
you would prefer, you can choose a particular period from the options
provided in the drop down list.
The location of all the monuments is stored in the database, which
makes it very easy to find all the monuments in a particular area.
If you know the area that you are interested in, then type the name
of it into the box provided, then click on the "Find Area" button.
This will match up the name of the area that you have typed in,
to the names of areas that are stored in the database. If there
is a match, you will then be presented with the list of areas that
matched what you typed in. If however, you would like to browse
the list of areas that are stored in the system, then you can do
this by clicking on the "Browse Areas" button. Now you can view
the internal hierarchy of areas.
