The exhibition of groundbreaking Web 1.0 sites has a solid track record. Debuting at Internet Week Europe 2010, it received global press coverage and recognition from The British Library. The following year, Google sponsored the exhibition at Internet Week New York, where it attracted 12,000 visitors and a keynote presentation by The Library of Congress. In 2013, a capsule show was visited by the team at CERN responsible for restoring the first website. Digital Archaeology featured as a key part of a larger exhibition, called Digital Revolution shown at The Barbican in 2014 and now on International tour.
Internet Week 2010
Digital Archaeology was one of the triumphs of Internet Week Europe 2010. The exhibition had a phenomenal response from the public, the industry, academia and the press. It was featured on The BBC show Digital Planet (23 million listeners), BBC London and The Guardian podcast. The Daily Mirror filmed the event and it was covered by WSJ, The New Scientist, Wired, Fox News, Reuters, Forbes and more than a hundred other news organisations.
“Digital Archaeology shone amid hundreds of events that week, because the story was so pertinent, not only people through-out the industry, but to people who use and appreciate its wider story about this phenomena, ‘The Internet’. It’s for that reason, I am sure, that it was picked up so heavily by the press, receiving more coverage than any other event.”
Penelope Shaw, Festival Director, Internet Week Europe
Internet Week 2011
The follow up event at Internet Week New York 2011 attracted 12,000 visitors, sponsorship from Google and a keynote presentation by the Library of Congress.

Nicolas Roope, Co-founder of The Lovie Awards
