Redford Conference in Digital Archaeology
Technology is changing our world in ways that previous centuries could not have imagined, and it is a constant struggle for us to keep up with these frequent changes and innovations.
While archaeology is a very old practice, only in the later 20th century was it given serious methodological consideration, and now, in the 21st century, this explosion in the availability of technological tools offers the potential to transform the practice of archaeology.
But the mere existence of a new tool, no matter how fun and exciting it might seem, does not necessarily translate into good use of that tool.
This is the theme addressed in the Redford Conference in Archaeology, held at the University of Puget Sound, October 25 - 27, 2012.
