Internet Archaeology 24: Dealing with Legacy Data

July 8th, 2008 by Gabriel Bodard

Internet Archaeology announces issue 24, a themed issue dedicated to: “Dealing with Legacy Data” edited by Pim Allison.

In the Mediterranean region particularly, but by no means not exclusively, there exist large datasets from previous excavations, published and unpublished, whose digitisation, spatial mapping and re-analysis can greatly facilitate investigations of social behaviour and changing environmental conditions. This volume presents a number of projects that demonstrate the usefulness of digital environments for analysing such non-digital data. These projects use these ‘legacy data’ within true GIS, pseudo-GIS, or other digital environments to answer specific questions concerning social behaviour and particularly the social use of space.

Several papers of interest to Classicists (as well as all to Digital Humanists).
