Digital Past: Our Sponsors
At the Royal Commission on Ancient and Historical Monuments we strive hard to keep our Digital Past conference as affordable as possible. We know that it is often difficult to find resources to attend conferences, and so every year we are extremely grateful to our conference sponsors who allow us to keep the event such good value for money for our delegates.
This year’s Gold sponsors are FARO® and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
