Space archaeology

I recently read Sarah Parcak’s “Archaeology from Space: How the Future Shapes Our Past ” and enjoyed it. It inspired me to take a closer look at remote sensing in archaeology, mentioned previously in this blog, but not really expanded upon. I thought it would be good to summarise a few learnings from the book […]

Computational archaeology in Malta

I spent my last vacation in Malta with my mom and husband. During our trip we explored various areas of the island, and were treated to archaeological sites ranging all the way back to 3500BC. This post summarises some of the computational archaeology that I read about along the way. Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum: This is […]

Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning in Archaeology Conference

Yes, it’s been more than a year since my last post. It’s time to get this blog going again! I am sorry for my absence. I’ve been following the Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning in Archaeology Conference that took place in Rome remotely via Twitter. I had to do it remotely as I only […]

Computational archaeology in Athens

This holiday I had the chance to finally visit Athens and it was beautiful. We had great weather considering it is January. As is tradition this lead to some research on how the various sites that we saw have been digitised. The city is covered in ruins. We stayed in the area of Monastiraki, very […]

Computational Archaeology in Italy

I just came back from a nice 2 week holiday in Italy, where I was spoiled with archaeology, art and sun (the latter not often seen in Berlin). We visited Napoli, Pompeii, Amalfi, Roma, Siena, Florence, Chianti and Pisa. Somewhere in between waiting for late/imaginary buses and drinking wine, we managed to see some incredible […]
