What’s it all for? Digitally-Born Archaeological INSIGHTS
Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) Special Session

Session Organizers: Lisa Fischer and Heather Richards-Rissetto

  • Innovative digital methods that provide new ways of archaeological inquiry
  • tensions between developing new digital archaeology tools & using existing ones
  • the complementarity of non-digital and digital data and methods to address specific research questions and education goals
  • When and why is digital essential? What types of archaeological inquiry can now be addressed because of the digital?
  • Are we succumbing to digital glam at the expense of research and education? If so, how do we move forward as new, seductive technologies hit the market?
  • Where do we see this all leading? What are our end-goals and how does the digital fit in?

Format:  Thematically grouped presentations followed by period of panel discussion involving the speakers and the audience.
