Summary

Geospatial technologies are revolutionizing the practice of the Digital Humanities, and these developments have direct relevance to the practice of archaeology. The most recent "spatial turn" among digital humanists can be attributed to the emergence of tools like ArcGIS that facilitate such investigations as well as an interdisciplinary convergence upon theoretical models that conceive of socially-constructed space. This paper will briefly review the current state-of-the-art in the sub-field of Spatial History as well as discuss a number of its emerging trends such as Deep Mapping, Digital Storytelling and Data Visualization, utilizing examples from the Vayots Dzor field project in Armenia. This paper will argue that archaeologists have much to gain from interdisciplinary engagement with the digital humanities.
