    Abstract:
    Sarsen Stones in Wessex Project: Data Transcription Strategy, Methodology and Protocols. This document lays out decisions that were made in preparation for, and during, the transcription of record sheets from the Society of Antiquaries of London 'Sarsen Stones in Wessex survey' (archive collection MS953, Society of Antiquaries of London library). It comprises the paradata for the transcription process resulting in the creation of the dataset sarsen_stones_in_wessex_data_MASTER.xls. It includes a brief introduction to the survey project carried out during the 1970s, and to the nature of the individual archive items that have been transcribed; a discussion of methods used by similar data digitisation projects; general problems that applied to all of the archive records; and the methodology adopted to digitise the data by manual transcription.
