infrastructures

Why (on earth) this would be an infrastructure - or a boundary object?

A doctoral student asked me some time ago about one of my studies, why I am framing a method as an infrastructure (publisher's site). A good question, absolutely, and it is not necessarily that obvious. In that particular study the method was of course a method. At the same time, however, as I at least tried to discuss in the text, it was also a sort of a scaffold and infrastructure to produce a certain kind of documentation of an archaeological site.
