New Spatial Humanities Website

28 Aug


Hi guys,
Just a quick post to tell you about the new website I developed for my current project, Spatial Humanities: Texts, GIS and Places.
You can access it here and it contains all the information and news on the use and development of new GIS methodologies for the analysis of texts.
Although I am working with the History department and Literature at Lancaster this is quite exiting as it is opening new great possibilities also for historical archaeology. I’ll keep you posted on the progress we are making and please feel free to contact me anytime ūüôā
Have a nice week!

Book: Thinking Beyond the Tool. Archaeological Computing and the Interpretive Process

15 Feb

Hey guys,

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 ‚ÄėThinking beyond the Tool: Archaeological¬†Computing and the Interpretive Process‚Äô, 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
The book will be out by the end of March and those of you coming to the CAA2012 keep an eye for it at the¬†Archaeopress¬†stand! Many thanks to all those ‚Äď both authors and reviewers-¬†who have¬†contributed to this!
