On the shifting grounds of archaeological information work

On shifting grounds – the study of archaeological practices in a changing world conference gathered a good number of peopel on 3-5 October 2019 in Rethymnon, Crete. The conference was organised by COST Action Archaeological Practices and Knowledge Work in the Digital Environment (ARKWORK) in collaboration with the Department of History and Archaeology of the University of Crete, and chaired by Åsa Berggren (Lund University), Antonia Davidovic (University of Heidelberg) and Theodora Moullou (University of Crete). I presented some preliminary theoretical considerations relating to the CAPTURE project in a talk titled "Where to find archaeological information work and how to CAPTURE it".

E-CURATORS

The E-CURATORS project will advance our knowledge on archaeological curation practices involving networked global infrastructures, readily available digital devices, tools and services, and diverse communities, and will address their pragmatic implications for long term preservation and access to the archaeological record, professional practice, and community engagement.
