Archie is an online, light-weight, open source inventory system for archaeological artifacts. With feedback from real world use in the field over the last several years, Archie has evolved into a robust, secure application capable of handling hundreds of active users and millions of entries. Archie supports associating multimedia files such as photos, audio and video commentary, and 3D scans of artifacts – all without any specialized client software beyond a web browser.
