Open Source in Archaeology: Science at Work!

Feb 10, 2010 by Joseph Reeves

My last post accused archaeological science practitioners of failing at science, and quite often, archaeological theory too.

Of course, there are people doing proper science and archaeology out there and they are talking about it too. More specifically, we're doing it. My last post was enough to encourage Benjamin to post the slides of a recent paper presented to the Institute of Archaeology:

Ducke 2010: Science Without Software no Longer: Archaeological Data Analysis and the Open Source Paradigm

The slides wonderfully demonstrate the point made by Professor Ince in his Guardian article, with examples from an archaeological perspective. Well worth the read.

We have other presentations available for download on our site:
