Welcome to the DigAR Lab!
The goal of the Digital Archaeology Research Lab is to engage in original research aimed at advancing the use digital technology and information in archaeology. It seeks to promote the development of Archaeological Information Science (AISc), an emerging field that results from the intersection of Archaeology with Computer and Information Science, Engineering and Mathematics.
We are particularly interested in initiatives that foster the development of new tools and technologies for Archaeology in areas such as Data Mining, Visualization, Digital Media, Ubiquitous Computing, Cluster/Cloud Computing, GIS and Computer Simulations.
We believe that archaeologists should become active participants in the creation of new information tools. And that in pursue of this goal, archaeologists should balance informed theoretical and practical needs with high dosages of innovation and creativity, thus promoting and precipitating new ways of doing Archaeology.
The DigAR Lab is part of the Department of Anthropology at the University of Washington in Seattle.
