Archaeological Recording Kit (ARK) is a collection of web-based tools for collection, storage and dissemination of archaeological data. Ark is based on Apache HTTP Server, MySQL, PHP and MapServer, and is free software released under the GNU GPL.[1]

It was developed by L - P : Archaeology to allow archaeological site directors to build their own customised archaeological recording system. It is designed to be flexible and customisable, with full spatial data integration and open for export and import of data.

The Fasti Online project was built using an ARK back-end, and demonstrates its usage beyond normal archaeological recording.[2]
