Our site is to be permanently archived

We feel honoured to be invited (April 2006) to take part in the pilot project of the UK Web Archiving Consortium. (Written/compiled by Ian Mursell/Mexicolore)

Our site has recently been selected by the British Library to be archived as one of a small number of ‘documentary heritage’ sites that will form part of the new UK Web Archiving Consortium project, as the result of which our Aztecs site will hopefully remain permanently available to researchers in the future.

As a site ‘where the primary purpose is to provide free educational content for teaching and learning’ our Aztecs site has also been approved (May 2006) for inclusion in the resource repository of Becta, the British Educational Communications and Technology Agency.

Becta’s resource repository supercedes the (now defunct) National Grid for Learning, whose Content Team had already (February 2005) praised our site in these terms: ‘This is a really valuable set of resources that will be well-used and valued by schools. It is well designed, simple to use and contains enough information for both teachers and parents to make effective use of the resources’.
