Happydigger is a program which you can be used for cataloging archaeological finds. happydigger project is intended both for semi-professional use and by amateurs (e.g. metal detectorists) who want to keep track of their finds.

Data is stored into a database with extensive find and findspot details. If images are available, they will be displayed together with the find information.

The user interface is available both in english and dutch.

The first 6 toolbar buttons can be used to browse the database. Next, there is a group of 3 buttons which can be used to apply changes that you have made to the record, delete a record and add a new record. The last group of 3 buttons will show a list view of all records, the preferences dialog and the help dialog.
