Perspectives to Archaeological Information in the Digital Society

Publication Type:




Department of ALM, Uppsala University, Uppsala (2014)


ISBN 978-91-506-2414-4



<p>Rather than a conclusion, the texts in the volume are a new start in working towards understanding the complexities of working with archaeological documentation and information. The intricacies of managing archaeological information and documentation have been acknowledged for a long time, but the rapid changes in premises, tools and the idea of how archaeology should be conducted in the digital age have shifted many of the parameters of the process.</p>

<p>The aim of this small book is to briefly discuss some of the premises for studying the implications and opportunities of the digitalisation of information and information work in the domain of archaeology and material cultural heritage. This book has been written under the auspices of the research project Archaeological Information in the Digital Society (ARKDIS) funded by the Swedish Research Council as a part of the work of the project to set the stage for researching the production and use of archaeological knowledge.</p>
