Digital Archaeology at Ironwood Village: A Model for Archaeology’s Paperless Future
The particular challenges at the Ironwood Village excavations—time constraints, burgeoning data opportunities, and management of a complex array of excavation staff and machinery--begged for a modernized approach to data collection and workflow management. PaleoWest Archaeology’s digital workflow system—already four years in development—was customized for the project and implemented throughout. The result was one of the world’s first all-digital major excavation projects, the success of which could serve as a model for a high-quality, efficient, and cost-effective archaeological workflow, in both cultural resource compliance and academic field research settings.
