Just a quick note to let you know that our book “Thinking Beyond the Tool: archaeological computing and the interpretive process” (cover by Javier Pereda) is already in press.
The idea of putting together this book was inspired by the session ‘Thinking beyond the Tool: Archaeological Computing and the Interpretive Process’, which was held at the Theoretical Archaeology Group (TAG) conference in Bristol (17-19 December 2010). The book postulates that archaeological computing has become an integral part of the interpretive process for inquiring and disseminating the past and includes:
- 12 theoretically informed chapters on a variety of computational methodologies used in archaeology and heritage
- an introduction by the editors (Costas Papadopoulos, Angeliki Chrysanthi and myself)
- a commentary by Jeremy Huggett
