An archaeological light age: On modernity, urbanism and the materiality of light-based technologies. (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Hilary Orange.

Artificial light is synonymous with modernity and the industrial age. Light turns night into day, guides our way, and transforms place and material. Despite its centrality within the urban experience, light studies are fragmented across a diverse set of fields including, among others, architecture, history, planning and art. Where historical and contemporary archaeology are concerned, light and light-based technologies have received little attention. In 2015, the International Year of Light...

Digital Archaeology and the Curation Crisis: 3D Modeling as an Answer to the Problems of Collections Access and Use (2014)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Mallory Marcone.

The archaeological curation crisis has plagued repositories and archaeologists alike with a multitude of problems for several decades, most notably inaccessibility to collections. Archaeological artifacts continue to be curated in repositories with little prospect of ever being used by researchers to uncover new information about the past, rendering them essentially useless and removing much of the moral justification of archaeology itself. However, in creating digital 3D models of artifacts and...
