Archaeogeomancy: Digital Heritage Specialists - archaeological geomatics - the majick of spatial data in archaeology - archaeological information systems for the digital age: Flux Seed by Steve Jurvetson Kelvin Wong of UCL is organising an Introduction to 3D GIS and BIM. This free event promises to be a great introduction to the subject and as of today (09/01/2017) there are only three places remaining so book pronto! The day will be split into two parts.
And another CAA is approaching! Deadline for paper abstracts: 28th of October ———————————————————————— The next International conference on Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA 2017 – http://caaconference.org/) will be held between March 14th and 16th, 2017 at Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA, USA.
Earlier this year Archaeovision completed a landscape photogrammetry survey of North Boscaswell Mine, Pendeen, Cornwall for the National Trust. North Boscaswell Mine worked for little more than a decade from 1906 and incorporates the remains of the only known Merton Furnace to survive in Britain. The mine was small-scale with 11 men being employed underground and six at surface in 1906. The numbers rose steadily until 1909 when the total number of employees was 41.
Some more videos from EAA Glasgow (I post some yesterday), these on GIS and spatial analysis. As someone who has done a PhD on both I found this session fascinating. If you are interested in more conference videos than see Recording Archaeology and subscribe there to receive updates when more videos become available.
Already looking forward to attending CAA 2016! The next Annual Conference on Computer Applications and Quantitative methods in Archaeology will be held in Oslo, between 29th March-2nd of April, 2016. Sessions will address many aspects related to the current use of digital technologies in archaeology.
In collaboration with the University of Chester and the Past in its Place Project, we are giving the first Course on Computational Technologies Applied to Archaeology at the National School of Anthropology and History in Mexico, taking place 5-9 of October. The course include topics such as GIS and Spatial Analysis, 3D modelling, Reflectance Transformation Imaging and Photogrammetry.
Here are the videos from CAAUK in March. A bit about the conference- CAA-UK aims to encourage communication between UK-based archaeologists, mathematicians and computer scientists in order to stimulate research and promote best practice in computational and mathematical approaches to the past. The conference was held at Bradford University’s dedicated Norcroft Conference Centre.
Newhard, Levine, and Phebus (2014) presented a LCP model that incorporated both terrestrial and marine costs to assist in exploring the connectivity between places. Developed in ArcGIS ModelBuilder, the initial model was streamlined by Nicola Buescher, Christina Carmack, Caleb Whitaker, Zach Campbell and Thomas Mims. The model is now available via GitHub as a Python script.
The e-proceedings of the first CAA GR conference have now been published! :-) Many thanks to the authors and the reviewers for their contribution.

Yes, there are similarities between my work and things that people actually want to spend time listening to. But you really have to look hard for them.
The second volume of the CAA 2012 proceedings was published a few days ago and is freely available from this link. The volume, that covers the full breadth of computer applications in archaeology, also includes a paper I co-authored with Cristina Corsi, while I was working at the “Radiography of the Past” project.
Archaeogeomancy: Digital Heritage Specialists - archaeological geomatics - the majick of spatial data in archaeology - archaeological information systems for the digital age: TACOS – the event On 14 May 2014 the Council for British Archaeology (CBA) hosted a one day seminar on behalf of FISH and HEIRNET at the University of York to discuss common issues facing the historic environment information sector and make progress towards a shared vision and agenda for historic environment...
Archaeogeomancy: Digital Heritage Specialists - archaeological geomatics - the majick of spatial data in archaeology - archaeological information systems for the digital age: Eiffel Tower On Thursday 24th April, I gave a presentation on my PhD research project (GSTAR) to the 2014 Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology conference, Paris, France.
Time for the third in the series of Hestia2 conferences! After great meetings in Southampton and Stanford we now move to Birmingham for ‘Telling stories with maps: the geoweb, qualitative GIS and narrative mapping’. The prgramme is included below. You can register for this meeting via eventbrite.
Archaeogeomancy: Digital Heritage Specialists - archaeological geomatics - the majick of spatial data in archaeology - archaeological information systems for the digital age: Tacos I’ll be talking about geospatial topics relating to historic environment information management at this seminar on 14th May. Another classic title for the event, following up on the successful NACHOS seminar.
I am very happy to announce that the open access version of the volume “Spatial analysis and social spaces: Interdisciplinary approaches to the interpretation of prehistoric and historic built environments” has now been published! You can access the full contents from this link: http://www.degruyter.
Archaeogeomancy: Digital Heritage Specialists - archaeological geomatics - the majick of spatial data in archaeology - archaeological information systems for the digital age: Archaeological excavations in a quarry Whilst working for Wessex Archaeology, I was privileged to play a minor part in a project which, over the course of numerous seasons of excavation, has proven to be rather exciting.
I’m really looking forward to this workshop: Telling stories with maps: the geoweb, qualitative GIS and narrative mapping Digital Humanities Hub, University of Birmingham, 30 April 2014 Call for papers As part of the Hestia 2 seminar series exploring the different ways in which humanistic approaches to data visualization are challenging and transforming existing mapping practices, we are pleased to invite contributions to a one-day workshop that will examine the specific role of GIS in...
Time for some more links: Oxford Archaeology: This is an archaeology and heritage practice that provides a variety of archaeology related services. Under their specialist services you can find a variety of computational archaeology services such as GIS surveying and graphics. Virtual Heritage Lab: This is a lab dealing with digital projects in archaeology. Spatial-tech: A computational archaeologist’s website aiming to discuss the latest technology being applied to archaeology.
Over the past few years there has been many interesting discussions about women and technology.
