Digital Scholarship in Archaeology

Collection launched: 05 Aug 2019

This Collection is derived from work carried out under the auspices of the European Union-funded European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) framework by the ARKWORK network (COST Action 1501 – which seeks to develop an understanding of how archaeological knowledge practices have developed within an increasingly digital environment. These papers focus on the relationship between the digital and scholarship in archaeology, examining the nature and value of scholarship within a digitally mediated archaeology.

  • - How is digital scholarship practiced?
  • - How do digital technologies facilitate, enhance and change the nature of archaeological scholarship across the extent of the archaeological knowledge chain: from discovery, through observation, explanation, and dissemination?
  • - How are research, synthesis, practice, and teaching within archaeology mediated and transformed by digital approaches?

In the process, the Collection seeks to contribute to an understanding of the transformations in archaeological practice through the incorporation of digital tools and methods, as well as an appreciation of how digital scholarship is experienced by archaeological scholars.
