Old excavation data: What can we do? Proceedings of the workshop held at the 10th ICAANE in Vienna, April 2016


The book describes theoretical and technical approaches to the digital integration of resources from old and long-term archaeological fieldwork projects in the Eastern Mediterranean region and Near Eastern states. All papers share a concern with the heterogeneity of resources from archaeological fieldwork, and they present a variety of strategies to overcome this challenge in the process of digitisation in order to preserve archaeological data and make it more accessible to researchers regardless of location. This volume results from presentations given at the workshop titled ‘Old Excavation Data – What Can We Do?’, held on 28 April 2016 at the 10th International Congress on the Archaeology of the Ancient Near East (ICAANE) in Vienna.
