Best Practices of Geoinformatic Technologies for the Mapping of Archaeolandscapes

Edited by Apostolos Sarris

Best Practices of Geoinformatic Technologies for the Mapping of Archaeolandscapes

City: Oxford

Year: 2015

Publisher: Archaeopress

Description: Paperback, 269 p., numerous colour figures, 29.8x21


Landscape archaeology is being transformed by the recent development of novel geoinformatic techniques that facilitate entirely new ways to study the archaeological record. Despite this stimulating potential, these techniques are developing so quickly that many practitioners are not fully aware of their capabilities or the most suitable ways to apply them. This volume presents state of the art research in the fields of geophysics, geochemistry, aerial imaging, dating, digital archaeology, GI5 and marine archaeology to provide a comprehensive overview of the specialised techniques which can contribute to landscape scale archaeological investigations. It is hoped that it will serve as a ‘best practice’ guide for their use and encourage their widespread adoption by the archaeological community.
