Computer Supported Excavation Documentation by Martin Schaich
By Steve White @ 07:20 :: 35382 Views :: 0 Comments :: Computers and Archaeology


ArcTron Ltd. has been developing various computer-supported information systems and electronic surveying instruments for use in archaeology for more than a decade. Several archaeologists and two specialist programmers, Hans-Juergen Quick and Boris Schuetz, have been involved in the various projects. The following online publication outlines the current status of our developments.

This article is a collection of edited and updated versions of various handbook literature. See, for example: M.Schaich, Computergestützte Grabungsdokumentation (Computer-Supported Excavation Documentation). In: E. Gersbach, Ausgrabung heute. Methoden und Techniken der Feldgrabung ( Excavation Today: Methods and Technology for Field Excavation)(Darmstadt 3rd Edition. 1998) 117-142.

Ownership and Inequality in the British Neolithic by Catherine Stevenson
By Steve White @ 12:24 :: 55177 Views :: 0 Comments :: General Archaeology

This dissertation will investigate ownership and inequality in the British Neolithic. The period of study covers a wide time frame, from 4000 BC to 2000 BC, and will focus on different aspects of archaeology – settlement and agriculture, burials, monuments, and warfare – across Britain. While this framework encompasses spatial and temporal variations, the constraints of this project, and a scarcity of specifically related literature, invites a broad approach using the most relevant archaeological examples.

Interpretations of the food sharing patterns at the Magdalenian settlement at Pincevent by Mary Lawson
By Steve White @ 20:47 :: 40672 Views :: 0 Comments :: General Archaeology

Food sharing practices are commonly recognised and discussed in ethnographic literature, however, food sharing among hunter gatherer groups archaeologically is much more difficult to recognise. Various theories have suggested reasons and motivations for food sharing, but these theories are often not testable archaeologically. Ethnographic analogy provides another method of analysing archaeological food sharing, but is not without its own problems. Food sharing has been proven to have taken place at Pincevent, level IV-20 by the refitting of reindeer bones.

Several methods are used to try and interpret the patterns of food sharing at Pincevent; a comparison with the Nunamiut concludes that the food sharing practices of the two are not exactly analogous, while the application of theoretical models for equal and unequal sharing shows the complexity of the food sharing practices at Pincevent.

UK POW Camps in WW2 by Gordon Wilkie
By Steve White @ 21:09 :: 191139 Views :: 159 Comments :: :: Military Archaeology

At the beginning of WW2, there were nine POW cages, one for each of the Home Commands(1). There were also detention camps for Enemy Aliens, but the main one was located on the Isle of Man, and this study will only list POW camps. These camps will be listed under the current County areas in which the main locations listed now fall.

Technology in Archaeology by Steve White
By Steve White @ 20:32 :: 33429 Views :: 0 Comments :: Computers and Archaeology

This study will assess how far new technologies could affect the collection, storage, and interpretation of information about archaeological remains. The technologies that will be looked at are Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and Computer-Assisted Design (CAD). The study will focus on the recent investigation at Wroxeter, where GIS was used to study material remains in a landscape context. It will then look at the studies undertaken at Pompeii, where surveys of existing architecture were immediately digitised into a CAD software package.

This offered opportunities to reconstruct hypothetical models, which might aid interpretation of the site. Both of these examples will be used to address the problems faced by traditional paper-based publication of archaeological investigations, such as cost and inflexibility. Throughout the study it will be argued that computerised publication will allow for a more flexible approach to interpretation, since data can be imported or exported to files quickly. This will enable many different hypotheses to be tested more easily and quickly against the data.
