Digital humanists meet science historians!
The edition of things - from jewellery to bones, from pottery to coins, from stone monuments to burials - in corpora is a central tool of knowledge generation in archeology. The majority of archaeological finds are "available" through academic publications - these "things" are published as line drawings, photographs, and descriptions in high-quality books. But how do epistemic practices change with the introduction of new media?
This week the archaeological research institute Römisch-Germanische Kommission des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts (RGK) in Frankfurt a.M., Germany, hosts a workshop dealing with the possibilities and challenges digital technology provides for making the mass of things available to a wider audience - both academic and public.
