On digital technologies in archaeology...
My interest in the use and development of digital technologies in archaeology started way back during my BA days and has progressed ever since. I firmly believe that with the right combination of theoretical insight, practical knowledge, creativity and technical skills digital technologies and information can aid significantly the collection of data, the analysis and interpretation of data and ultimately, the discovery of new knowledge in archaeology.
