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 news, software, tools and videos August 2015

It’s been a busy year, but that’s no reason to not sneak in a computational archaeology news and links post. Here are some of the latest articles I’ve ran into: News and articles Nazi-destroyed synagogue mapped by laser: Archaeologists use ground penetrating laser techniques to search for an fourth century synagogue. Another link on this: Ground-Penetrating […]

Computational Archaeology March Links

I have saved a set of links relevant to computational archaeology which I probably shouldn’t group together but really want you to have, so here they are in a generic post anyways 🙂 Computational Vision Group: Remember the ARROWS and THESAURUS Projects that I posted about? Well, these guys are involved in both of those projects. […]

GIS in Archaeology

I recently decided to take some courses online on Coursera. I attempted to do an Archaeology one but I was at a bunch of conferences during the course so I could not complete it. There is, however, one course I recently completed called “Maps and the Geospatial Revolution”. I took this course in order to […]
