What

The goal of the Summer Institute is to produce an undergraduate textbook about digital methods in archaeology. Digital technologies are an ever-increasing component of all archaeological work, but currently there is no textbook that archaeology undergraduates can turn to which provides a comprehensive overview and introduction to digital methodologies. This publication aims to fill that gap and be a handbook for the next generation of archaeologists from across Australasia.

CAA Australasia invites members to contribute archaeological case studies from their own work that utilise digital methods and applications within Australia and abroad. Examples of technological applications may involve:

  • Virtual Reality
  • Geophysics
  • Geographic Information Systems
  • Remote Sensing
  • Photogrammetry
  • 3D modelling and analysis
  • Data management, licensing and intellectual property
  • Simulation and agent modelling
  • Theory and ethics

This publication welcomes contributions not just from academic archaeologists, but also heritage consultants and practitioners. We invite anyone who would like to contribute, from experts to people who can chase down references or produce illustrations.
