Data, Digital Databases, and Teaching Students Zooarchaeology in the 21st Century
This is an abstract from the "Zooarchaeology and Technology: Case Studies and Applications" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
As zooarchaeologists address digital data preservation, management, and access, and confront issues surrounding data standardization and integration, it is clear that most of our students have little understanding of the importance of digital data or of the issues surrounding its creation, preservation, and use. One outgrowth of the collaboration of the Eastern Archaic Faunal Working Group has been experimentation with using web resources and curricular modules to help students move from a focus on discovery and identification to a concern with how to record their observations and work with digital databases. This approach is part of training technologically savvy zooarchaeologists.
