  • 3D Modelling and Interactive Mapping of Historic Shipwreck Sites (2013)
    DOCUMENT Citation Only Michael J Postons.

    Recent developments in technology have made the process of recording terrestrial archaeological sites a much more digital affair.  The same can now be said for underwater historical sites such as shipwrecks.  This paper will explore through a number of UK and US projects carried out during 2012, showing how shipwrecks can be mapped and modelled in 3D, the process involved, and the exciting public outreach formats that can be created.  From web based interactive 3D shipwreck tours, to game-engine...

  • eScience – a New Developing Paradigm for Archaeologists? (2013)
    DOCUMENT Citation Only Teija Oikarinen. Helena Karasti. Timo Ylimaunu.

    Digital infrastructures (DIs) and related socio-technical research have been proposed as methods for analysing and informing the eScience era of archaeology. This research area offers a conceptual framework for researching technologies, such as the role of IT and its implications for archaeology. DI conceptualization of technology also recognizes the process of digitalization and sociotechnical dynamics in integrating technologies into expanding configurations. Archaeology can be observed...

The project involves collaboration with the University of Sydney Library, the Archaeology of Sydney Research Group and local professional historical archaeologists with funding from a NSW state heritage grant. NSW AOL is configured to support full-text search and display and will soon provides...

  • Mapping the African American Past: a Model of Collaboration for Public Archaeologies. (2013)
    DOCUMENT Citation Only Jenna Coplin. Allison J.M. McGovern.

    Mapping the African American Past (MAAP), hosted by Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning, is comprised of web-based educational modules that stem from partnerships forged between educators, technologists, archaeologists, and students to construct accessible interrelated landscapes.  Linking digitized contributions from local historical societies, libraries, and family genealogies, transforming palimpsest into lesson plans and downloadable audio walking tours, creates geographies...

  • Public Archaeology in a Mobile, Digital World (2013)
    DOCUMENT Citation Only Jason T Kent.

    Mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets have become integral pieces of technology in the lives of many individuals. This expanding presence of mobile technology demands the development of ways to interact with the public outside the traditional means of public archaeology. These technologies can offer opportunities to reach out to a different demographic than might normally be reached.  A younger, more tech-savvy generation can often be found tethered to their device of choice.  It seems...
