Once again it has been a while since my last news post, so I’ll be squishing a variety of resources here. Researchers Decipher Antikythera Mechanism Text – researchers decyphered label on ancient Antikyhthera device using X-ray scanning equipment and imaging technology. Archaeologist points to hidden monument in Jordan’s Petra – Satellite and drone images led to the discovery of a […]

Computational Archaeology Documentaries

  I’m busy working through a bunch of documentaries when cooking. I found that the Archaeology section of Documentary Heaven is more focused on computational archaeology than I would have imagined. Here is the list that I have found so far: Documentary on the Vikings – discusses how satellite imaging is used to find Viking sites […]

Computational Archaeology – May links

I disappeared for a while as I was busy wrapping up the first draft of my thesis. Now it’s time to catch up on some blogging. Here are some links relevant to computational archaeology you may have missed during my absence: What can we learn from computational archaeology: How stuff works has a short article […]

Using computational archaeology as a tourist

Hello dear followers, I have been quiet for so long I have almost forgotten how to blog. The reason for my absence is the fact that I went to two conferences during the month of June. The first was the Large Scale Scientific Computations(LSSC) conference that took place in Sozopol, Bulgaria (yes, I went to […]

Travelling is an expensive hobby which many people cannot allow themselves to do.  However, in this information era, more and more people have access to some internet service, either via a mobile device or a personal computer. With Nokia developing cheap smart phones aimed at the African market, were many people may not have access […]

Google Image Survey may have found lost Egyptian Pyramids

Satellite images of an area in Egypt show suspicious signs of undiscovered pyramids, here. Field work still needs to be done to figure out what exactly is happening in that area, but this is a great example of using computers to analyse an area in order to decide where to begin excavations. Archaeologists don’t need software created specifically for […]
