Archaeological Science, Archaeology of Science: Tools for Closing the Gap between Practice and Ideals (2018)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Ben Marwick.

Computational methods are increasingly being used by archaeologists and appearing in archaeological science journals. But does this make archaeology more or less scientific? On one hand, computers are anti-science because they are often used as black boxes. On the other hand, many computational tools enable unprecedented transparency of the analytical workflow. I briefly review how archaeological science has recently been defined and how the practice compares to the ideals. I then evaluate these...

Good Digital Curation: Sharing and Preserving Archaeological Data as Part of Your Regular Workflow (2016)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Francis McManamon. Leigh Anne Ellison. Jodi Reeves Flores.

Archaeology is awash in digital data collected as part of surveys, excavations, laboratory analyses, and comparative studies.  Sophisticated statistical analyses, spatial studies, contextual comparisons, a variety of scanning technologies, and other contemporary methods and techniques both use and generate complex and detailed digital archaeological data.  Digital data are easier to duplicate, reanalyze, share, and preserve if they are curated properly.  However, digital data curation differs in...

US Archaeology Data Science Workshop: Report from Workshop Track D National Science Foundation US-Serbia & West Balkan Data Science Workshop (2018)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Francis McManamon. Carolyn Heitman. Timothy A. Kohler. Ben Marwick. Adam Rabinowitz.

This report summarizes the substance of the US Archaeology panel presentations and provide general comments on data science issues as they relate to archaeology and the other disciplines represented at the National Science Foundation-funded US Serbia & West Balkans Data Science Workshop. We also present suggestions regarding potential collaborative research involving US and Serbian & West Balkan archaeologists. These comments and the assessment are based on our experiences during the formal...
