Archaeology and Archaeological Information in the Digital Society shows how the digitization of archaeological information, tools and workflows, and their interplay with both old and new non-digital practices throughout the archaeological information process, affect the outcomes of archaeological work, and in the end, our general understanding of the human past.
Whereas most of the literature related to archaeological information work has been based on practical and theoretical considerations within specific areas of archaeology, this innovative volume combines and integrates intra- and extra-disciplinary perspectives to archaeological work, looking at archaeology from both the inside and outside.
With fields studies from museums and society, and pioneering new academic research, Archaeology and Archaeological Information in the Digital Society will interest archaeologists across the board.
"Any contribution with the word “digital” runs the risk of going quickly out-of-date because it is too focused on the use of specific tools or apps. That is not the case for this volume, which promises lasting value because it explores how digital approaches (regardless of the actual tool used) impact how we perceive the past and our roles in preservation and communication of archaeological content." - Sarah Whitcher Kansa and Eric Kansa, JOURNAL OF EASTERN MEDITERRANEAN ARCHAEOLOGY AND HERITAGE STUDIES
