Publisher Description

Exploring
the use of digital methods in heritage studies and archaeological research




The two volumes of
Digital Heritage and Archaeology in
Practice
bring together archaeologists and heritage professionals from
private, public, and academic sectors to discuss practical applications of
digital and computational approaches to the field. Contributors thoughtfully
explore the diverse and exciting ways in which digital methods are being
deployed in archaeological interpretation and analysis, museum collections and
archives, and community engagement, as well as the unique challenges that these
approaches bring.

This
volume begins with discussions of digitization at museums and other heritage
institutions, including ethical questions around access to archives associated
with descendant communities and the use of metadata standards to preserve
records for the future. Next, case studies provide several examples of public
and community engagement with archaeology using digital tools. The volume
concludes with information on ways archaeologists have taught digital methods
to both students and professionals, addressing field school contexts and open
source software for mapping and 3D imaging.


Digital Heritage and
Archaeology in Practice
highlights the importance of community, generosity,
and openness in the use of digital tools and technologies. Providing a
purposeful counterweight to the idea that digital archaeology requires
expensive infrastructure, proprietary software, complicated processes, and
opaque workflows, these volumes privilege perspectives that embrace
straightforward and transparent approaches as models for the future.
