Hello everyone!

We are just few days away from CAA2012 and I have very good news for those that couldn’t attend for any reason.

Over the course of the CAA 2012, we will be producing a series of eight videos on a variety of topics, including ‘Best of the Day’, ‘The Future of the CAA’, and ‘Is Archaeological Computing Changing?’.

All videos produced will be made available through this page, so please bookmark it if you intend to follow the conference online.

We will also be streaming the plenary session.

A timetable of online video content will be made available here nearer the date of the conference.

Register at CAA2012 attend online! and check all the possibilities that computing applications in Archaeology have for you!

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 ‘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
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 – both authors and reviewers- who have contributed to this!
