: Archaeological theory in the light of contemporary computing

I will be giving a paper at this conference in December 2008

One of our chief goals will be to challenge the degree to which digital archaeology is synonymous with quantitative methods and their empiricist overtones. This is not intended as a criticism of either, but rather as an opportunity to reappraise the relationship between digital approaches and archaeological methodologies.

The session is intended to contribute toward an archaeological response to a rapidly changing and increasingly complex digital world. It will conclude with a panel discussion.

This forces us to reconsider the manner in which both archaeologists and the public engage with information and to discuss the opportunities and dangers which arise from digital archaeologies.
Though once peripheral to standard archaeological practise, computers have begun to reshape both our discipline and the way we think about it
