This paper addresses the importance of the curation of cultural heritage data that bear the content of the visual interfaces. Digital curation is an operational process that has been recently appointed as a practical method for the account of digital data that arise in cultural heritage projects. The goal of the paper is to state the importance of digital curation for the archaeological projects and to illustrate how it works in the case the Beyond Archaeology (BeArchaeo) project, an on-going European project, where all the interfaces that allow for the interactions with the digital objects will be based on a centralized database. Here we address all the phases that concern the archaeological activities, from the excavation to the exhibition of the findings, and we show how we develop the centralized data repository that undergoes the development of the communication interfaces.
