Digital Archaeology Network: "ComplexIT – Dealing with New and Old Data in Archaeology"

10.11.2023 | 10:00 - 17:00


Modern archaeological research deals not only with the complexity of the data collection process but also with the re-use of the enormous amount of information already produced by past research. Developing strategies for effective data acquisition which consider differences, incommensurability, and interpretative nuances, as well as combining and processing the accumulation of information collected in the past, are the biggest tasks for modern archaeologists. Which digital methods can we apply for a precise and reliable acquisition, processing and interpretation of new and old data? What are the benefits and shortcomings of a standardized practice for data recording and processing? Do digital solutions help to effectively communicate the archaeological knowledge produced by these methods to a broad audience?

This workshop aims to approach possible solutions for these issues and to start a discussion about the impact of structured digital data on the production and sharing of archaeological knowledge. To achieve this, young researchers with different backgrounds will present their research and solutions for dealing with the complexity of such information.
