Gill has worked in the IT industry for many years, most recently as an expert witness helping clients unravel the mess caused by large IT project failures. She has just completed a BSc in Archaeology at the University of Reading and through that discovered an interest in developing tools to help archaeologists in their day to day activities.
So far she has concentrated on Apps but she is also interested in database design, archives and using new technology to provide practical solutions to research problems.
This is a list of digital tools that are either aimed specifically at archaeologists or that archaeologists have found useful, on excavations or in the lab.
People who are interested in digital tools for archaeology and can help with funding, specifying, developing tools – or justusing the ones you already have.
Here you can find a collection of archaeological excavation data from around the world and the necessary information how to access it. The data is sorted by country of the excavation site (not of the excavator).
- North America
- South America
Objects and Finds
The following hosts offer various information on different types of objects and finds from museums, libraries, archives, excavations etc. As most databases offer different types of objects, from buildings information to books, and also from different periods, this list is (currently) not structured.
(Please add further sources and information how to access the data as comments / posts – we will integrate the data regularly. If you found any broken links, please report them below, too. THANKS!!!)
What standards and methods apply to the tools I’m developing?
What sourcs of funding are there – who should I approach?
